“Peter Fanucchi began his career in wine in 1972… Today his Old-Vine Zinfandel as well as his Trousseau Gris, an aromatic white, are highly sought after by those in the know.” Master Sommelier Catherine Fallis In: Great Wines You Can Buy Online Of the Trousseau Gris: “A unique grape originally grown in the Alsace and this is one of the only examples in the U.S.” Of the Old Vine Zinfandel: “Excellent varietal Character.

2005 Trousseau Gris
The Fanucchi Wood Road Vineyard, of Russian River

Typical Tasting Notes: Crisp, Clean, Flowery bouquet, FRESH PEACHES, honeysuckle, pear, melon & delicate spice and tropical fruit flavors make it a delightful compliment to a wide ... morearray of foods! Compare its “Nose” to Viognier or Marsanne, with a gentler spice than a dry Gewürztraminer and far, far, more fruit than the best Pinot Gris could hope for! After bottling it can take a few months for this wine to open up, some times not opening up near it’s best till the following fall. In the event you forget a hidden bottle in the back of your cool dark, secret storage place, we've recently discovered that it's natural effervescence can also allow a few years of safe aging!

This year’s Port is blend of Syrah from the Janian Vineyard in Sonoma Mountain, Cabernet Sauvignon from our Alexander Valley property, and a small percentage of Merlot.
