Heitz Cellar, Grignolino Rosé, Napa Valley 2015
The unusual Grignolino grape was planted on the first parcel of vines Joe Heitz planted when he established the eponymous winery, so the variety enjoys a special place in the Heitz family’s hearts—and Napa Valley history. A seductive nose of sweet red cherry and wild berries is followed by a wine built around great acidity, with just the subtlest hint of savoury phenolics on the back end that cry out for al fresco dining.
