One off the most original california wines of 2014 that celebrates, youth and playfulness with a carefree abandon. Tremendously versatile with food.

This Valdiguié (called Gros Auxerrois in Languedoc-Roussillon) from Sonoma comes across as a fruity Gamay or even a light-weight New World Cabernet Franc. Strawberries, lilac and menthol emanate from a light ruby red. Generous body with some rough tannins and acidity keep the finish interesting.

I am loving this grape. Cherries, funk, river rock, some pepper. Fantastic easy food wine.
