The wine’s complex aromas of black fruits, rich leather and nuances of violets burst out of the glass. Its full-bodied, rich mouthfeel carries these avors for a long, lingering nish that loves a good grilled steak, rack of lamb or roasted duck.
-Miljenko “Mike” Grgich first gained international recognition at the celebrated “Paris Tasting” of 1976. We treat each of our six different wines as a special child, carefully nurturing their development and character. Our pride and joy is our Chardonnay, an elegant example of the varietal displaying rich flavors and exquisite balance. As a complement to the Chardonnay, we also produce a refreshingly crisp Fumé Blanc, a rich and spicy Zinfandel, a Cabernet Sauvignon with tremendous depth and complexity, a lush and richly fragrant Merlot, and a luscious dessert wine named “Violetta,” in honor of Mike’s daughter, Violet. “A solid red with black currant and berry character. Full body, round and velvety tannins and a pure and delicious fruit. So right now. Made from organically grown grapes.”
