Mmmm, easy drinking Grenache from Napa, yes please! When we stumbled upon this goodie, we thought, who could resist this? It's all dark fruits, deep, spicy and smooth, who wouldn't just sip this for hours on end? Aaand, we basically did (oops), but that's beside the point because we had an idea. The moment it hit our palates, we looked at each other and said, TEXAS BBQ. Then we immediately procured a brisket, fired up a smoker, whipped up some BBQ sauce and waited a few hours for the meat to get to that perfect, melt-in-your mouth texture before devouring it over a lively debate of the GOT finale. Needless to say, the wine paired perfectly. ...and we do work hard, we promise. But who could resist brisket and Grenache?

Notes of baked dark fruit, black cherry, raspberry with toasty spice and roasted hazelnuts with just a hint of brown sugar. Smooth finish on the back and definitely easy drinking. For $15 and from Napa?! It's a no-brainer. Get at it!

TASTING NOTES

THE STORY TO KNOW

Lava Vine was founded in Calistoga, CA in 2004 by Joe and Jill Cabral with the core winemaking goals of specializing in lesser-known grape varietals and appellations. Offerings included Grenache, Syrah and Zinfandel from a 60 year-old organic vineyard in Mendocino, Tempranillo and Verdejo from Suisun Valley, and classic wines from Calistoga, such as Charbono and Petite Sirah. Lava Vine was purchased by the von Strasser family who continue the diverse portfolio and winery operations today.
