Vignerons de Tavel 2007

Mis en bouteille at the Cave des Vignerons de Tavel in Tavel 14% purchased for $10.99 at K&L Caves des Vignerons de Tavel

    For a fine California rendition of 07 Cinsault, visit Imagery Estate Winery in Glen Ellen. The fruit is sourced fron the Dragonsleaf vineyard on Sonoma Mountain.Joe Benziger made 125 cases,seperating it from the usual vineyard designated blend.Rumour has it he rolled up his pants and stomped the grapes as they didn’t fit throught the holes in the destemmer. Soft and spicy with a good backbone.
