Red Wine /// Valdiguié // North Coast Cali / USA
A blend primarily composed of Valdiguié, Carignan, Tannat, and red field blend from the North Coast of California. This captures the vintage in a glass and show what California is exceptional at -- stand alone, vibrant, energetic, interesting, fun and delicious wines. Phenomenal colour. Perfumed and floral nose with white flowers, orange blossoms and a hint of rose. Fresh, crushed red fruits on the palate, with ripe, round fresh tannins, finishing clean and bright in the mouth. You gotta try Valdiguié straight away. Trust us!! STSWine

Michael Cruse’s 2017 Monkey Jacket, a Valdiguié/Petite Sirah/Carignan and mixed blacks blend, is dark, racy and absolutely gorgeous. Black cherry, plum, spice and leather notes race out of the glass in this pliant, super-expressive red. Best of all, Monkey Jacket is a tremendous value. The blend is 40% Valdiguié and the rest a field blend of mixed blacks. ANTONIO GALLONI, Vinous
