Deep ruby colour to this, with a slightly weird nose of bananas and acetone -- would almost make you think it were a gamay. In the mouth it's a bit out of balance -- tart but somehow unconvincing acid and odd, gritty tannins. There's a sweet edge (which I find in a lot of Californian warmer-climate wines) that just about topples the wine and makes it, in my view, very hard to match with food. It would need red meat to smooth the tannins, I think, but then what red meat would go with that weird banana aroma and tip-of-the-tongue sweetness? All in, a typically eccentric wine from Randall Grahm, but in this case, not such a successful experiment.
