Our Grandmère is a captivating blend of three of the red varieties that Amador County is best known for growing. With aromas of freshly peeled orange, sweet semi-dried herbs and bright maraschino cherry, this wine is opulently fruit forward and plush with an intriguing savory note that lasts through the long, lush finish. Ripe, black fruits are the foundation of this beauty with notable flavors of black cherry, cassis, blackberry, and most distinctly, rich, dark chocolate. Drink now through 2022.
