Cruse Wine Co. Monkey Jack Red Blend 2016


No one knows how Valdiguié first landed in California, and until the 1990s when experts performed genetic testing on the grapes, winemakers were convinced the varietal was Gamay. Interestingly, the grape produces high yields and is resistant to mildew, but is seldom planted in the area.

Tasting Notes: This wine is funky on the nose with sexy, seductive elegance on the palate: enjoy luscious pomegranate, blueberry, and plum.

Pairings: Literally anything: serve your favorite dish!

Varietals: Valdiguié, Tannat
Soil Types: clay, silt
Fermentation: spontaneous fermentation in concrete tanks
Aging: French oak
