2010 Skinner Grenache WINE OF THE WEEK

January 30, 2013
By Jon Bonné, Chronicle Wine Editor

“Heading into the weekend of the big game, it’s time for a red robust enough to party with. But Chris Pittenger’s work both accomplishes that and shows off so much more — specifically the beauty of this grape on the Sierra Foothills’ complex soils. It’s refined as can be, with cedar, iris and strawberry blossoms, but lest you think it might be too subdued for a Bowl party, it still does what Grenache does best: level an intense dose of fruit to more than match whatever Game Day snacks you can throw at it.”
