Winemaker/owner Chuck Mansfield is devoted to California Grenache, offering this gem from the Sierra Foothills' subregion of El Dorado County. Light in color and fresh in taste, its layers of slightly savory rhubarb and strawberry are boosted by firm acidity and an enticing finish of spice. At under $20 this is an exceptional deal for the quality.
