Folk Machine Film & Camera Valdigue 2013
Valdigue - it's an old school grape that's been found in California vineyards but never been given much glory. It also goes by the name of Napa Gamay - but this name isn't a favorite of either the fancy wineries in Napa or the growers of actual gamay. So valdigue it is! It's bright and zippy, with notes of cherry fruit and a hint of fresh herbs. We're weirdly well-versed in the various valdigue bottlings (there are only a handful, and we've tried them all) and this is always one of our favorites due to its concentration and lovely balance of fruit and general happy-making abilities.
