Cruse Proprietary Red 'Monkey Jacket' North Coast 2016
This uncommon field blend of Valdiguie, Carignan, and Tannat hails from California’s North Coast; unlike the many full-bodied fruit bombs coming out of the region, Cruse’s Monkey Jacket shows a lighter, brighter profile, full of crunchy red fruit and zippy acidity. Fun, fruit-forward, and super easy to drink.
California, United States
The sun in the American wine solar system, but at the same time a wine 'nation' in its own right, California is like the popular kid in high school that was good at everything and good-looking, too.
