Thacher 2018 Shell Creek Vineyard Valdiguié (Paso Robles Highlands District)

Editors' Choice

From a rarely seen grape once known as “Napa Gamay,” this bottling begins with hearty boysenberry, crumpled purple flowers and a strong streak of potting soil and turned loam on the nose. The palate is uniquely earthy and fresh at once, with grippy tannins and strong acidity delivering a gritty combination of wet soil and black raspberry. Matt Kettmann
