Alicante Bouschet

4415 visitors
Alicante Bouschet is a wine grape variety that has been widely cultivated since 1866. It is a cross of Grenache with Petit Bouschet (itself a cross of the very old variety Teinturier du Cher and Aramon). Alicante is a teinturier, a grape with red flesh. It is the only teinturier grape that belongs to the Vitis vinifera family. Its deep color makes it useful for blending with light red wine. It was planted heavily during Prohibition in California for export to the East Coast. Its thick skin made it resistant to rot during the transportation process. The intense red color was also helpful for stretching the wine during prohibition, as it could be diluted without detracting from the appearance. At the turn of the 21st century, Alicante Bouschet was the 12th most planted red wine grape in France with sizable plantings in the Languedoc, Provence and Cognac regions.

2006 Noir de Noirs, Old Vines
Sonoma Valley

This wine is made from a blend of four teinturiers (grape varieties with colored juice) from our estate vineyard and the neighboring Pagani Ranch. It is predominantly Alicante Bous ...morechet blended with Lenoir, Grand Noir and Petite Bouschet. Although 2006 was a high yield vintage for most vineyards, the Pagani Ranch Alicante crop was very light – less than half the production of 2003 or 2004. As a result, this wine is bigger and richer than the previous two vintages, just bursting with fresh grape aroma and flavor. Ripe berry fruit aromas, chocolate, lots of spice. Thick, viscous and full of jammy, sweet tasting fruit. Still the wine you drink with a fork! Regular Gold medal winner at the Sonoma County Harvest Fair.

$25.00
