2018 Donati Family Vineyard Reserve Grenache
As part of the first generation of an Italian immigrant family, Ron Donati was raised in San Francisco. His grandfather Albino would make wine in the basement for the family dinner table. Today, Donati Family’s focus is on producing Bordeaux-styled wines from Paso Robles.
Crafted from 100% Grenache, this wine shines with a bright salmon-ruby rim. It caresses the palate with crème de cassis, baked strawberry compote and pomegranate. The tannins are ripe and rounded as this wine remains elegant and focused from front to back.
