Quivira 2008 Dry Creek Valley Grenache

Top 10 Father's Day Wines 2010

Quivira 2008 Grenache, one of our Top 10 Father's Day Wines


Quivira 2008 Grenache, Wine Creek Ranch
Dry Creek Valley, California

Made with Demeter-Certified biodynamic grapes, this California Grenache stands out from others by offering savory and spicy notes (in addition to the expected strawberry flavors). Aging in oak casks for 15 months rounded out rough edges, revealing a wine with underlying power and an invitingly supple feel on the palate. This versatile wine pairs well with everything from spicy Szechuan cuisine to salmon cooked on a cedar plank.

Rating: 13.5/20
