Eric Ross Vineyards is at the forefront of California’s move into producing intriguing wines using Spanish grape varietals.
The 2009 Struttin’ Red ($28) is 91% Tempranillo and 9% Garnacha (Grenache). This easy-going, fruity, red wine is made from younger vines located in Lodi, California’s favored Central Valley location for fine wine grapes. With ripe strawberries on a smoky nose, this wine is sweet on the palate. Moderate 14.4% alcohol makes it very friendly for sipping or pairing to a meal, Mexican food would be one great idea. If you love the Eric Ross Saralee Pinot Noir, one notch up of red robustness could be your next delight!
