Description: Enticing berry and cherry aromas and flavors are nicely accented by a touch of spice.

The limited production of the 2004 vintage yielded only 238 cases.

Varietal Definition
Indigenous to Italy’s Piedmont region, Grignolino is only a minor grape in its homeland, where it makes light red wines with characteristic herbaceous and floral aromas. Less than 50 acres of Grignolino exist in California, where only a small number of wineries utilize this variety. In the Golden State, the most recognized Grignolino is the rosé long made by Heitz Wine Cellars.
