The old vine offering of 100% Grenache, the 2008 La Granacha Signargues, is super. Like its sibling, it was made and bottled without any SO2, a rarity. Furthermore, these vineyards are organically farmed. Sexy black fruit and floral notes are followed by a deep, full-bodied wine displaying plenty of kirsch, underbrush, and loamy soil notes. Good purity, a full-bodied texture, deliciously ripe fruit, and a seamless style make for a sensational bargain-priced wine that should drink well for 2-3 years.
Domaine des Fées was the name chosen by the owner of the property, Carole Martinez. She wanted the name to reflect all of the plants and foliage that help her in the vine growing as "fairies", especially in her biological way of producing.
The Napa Valley and Cabernet Sauvignon are so intrinsically linked...
The Napa Valley and Cabernet Sauvignon are so intrinsically linked that it is difficult to discuss one without thinking of the other. Although Cabernet has many important outposts throughout the wine world, nowhere else has it achieved such success (and, at the highest end, commanded such lofty prices) than in Napa. Here, it is responsible for bold, opulent, and dark-fruited wines with grippy tannins and a healthy dose of alcohol. The best examples can age for decades. Each of Napa’s smaller sub-AVAs imparts a different character to Cabernet, such as Rutherford’s famous dust or Stags Leap District's tart cherry flavors.
