2011 Neyers Rossi Ranch Sonoma Valley Grenache
Jon Bonné, writing in the San Francisco Chronicle recommended this Californian Grenache, the world’s fifth most planted red grape, which he said is “ignored far too often as not beautiful enough.”
He said: “This 1910-era site on a back road near Glen Ellen is one of those hidden treasures, although Neyers winemaker Tadeo Borchardt is giving it some welcome attention.
“This bottle’s all about sprezzatura – gorgeously fragrant and easygoing, full of wild sage, tobacco, red currant, cardamom, supple but with serious structure.”
