Wine review: 2012 Quivira Vineyards 'Wine Creek Ranch' Grenache

Wine review: 2012 Quivira Vineyards 'Wine Creek Ranch' Grenache
2012 Quivira Vineyards "Wine Creek Ranch" Grenache (Glenn Koenig / Los Angeles Times)

From an experienced hand at Grenache and grapes farmed biodynamically comes this bright, juicy Sonoma Grenache. The 2012 Quivera Grenache from Wine Creek Ranch is silky and smooth, tasting of black cherries and dried wild herbs. It's delicious and easygoing, but with some depth and character.

Open a bottle for your best burgers, steak frites, a rack of ribs or a main course salad. Good with cheese too.
