We taste A LOT of really bad inexpensive wine every year. If we find 4 or 5 wines under $15 each year that really sing, we consider that a huge success.
This is one of those wines that sings. Why, do you ask?
As the Foppiano family has been growing grapes in the Russian River Valley since 1896, it seems reasonable to slap that vintage on this wine. That’s particularly true because the wines of a century ago were field blends, amalgamations of various and sundry grapes planted throughout the North Coast vineyards. It’s only in the last half century that people have become fixated on varietally-specific wines, but not so much back then.
Today, the Foppianos have 160 planted acres; back then, not as much. But they grew a mix of what was cool then, and maybe what is still cool today: this is 67% Petite Sirah, 14% Carignane, 8% Barbera, 7% Mourvedre, 4% Zinfandel. Don’t let the grape blend give you the impression that this is some over the top, high octane wine. It’s more like the wines of that bygone era: soft, supple, fruity and with only moderate alcohols at 13.5 %. It’s aged for a year in American and French barrels. Like we say, a moderate touch.
We'll have it on the machines at all eight stores all weekend long so you can see for yourself!
