Wine of the Week: David Girard Vineyards' 2007 Grenache


I enjoyed a fun confection of a red wine this week, crafted by Placerville’s David Girard Vineyards. The winery’s 2007 Grenache showcased an exuberant profusion of sunny strawberry and raspberry flavors, with fleeting, spicy notes of clove and black pepper. Nicely balanced and appealingly light, this is a great sipping wine – perfect for pre-dinner conversation and uncomplicated appetizers.
