Great wines are made in the vineyard, and the Ventana Vineyard has the perfect combination of water, soil, climate, art and science to create superb, world-class wines. Our success is evidenced by the number of awards that we have won over the years on wine made from this remarkable property. In fact, wines from our Ventana Vineyard have earned more medals and awards than any other single vineyard in America.

We had friends over and blind tasted this with a 2007 Rhone. Guess what? This won. At first it was a little closed down and the fruit wasn't very apparent. But in the end, it opened up, good deep fruit, nice tannins, and a decent finish. Went great with our veal (look up "rose veal," before you accuse me of eating cruelly treated calf meat). I like my grenache a little dirtier, or barnyardy, but this was quite nice. Thanks to my sis for the birthday bottle--you nailed it!
