WINE OF THE WEEK

December 22, 2004|By Michael Dresser

2004 Bonny Doon Clos de Gilroy California Grenache ($15). Here's a big, bold but very fruity and youthful red wine that would pair up quite well with turkey or any festive roast. It's loaded with cherry, raspberry, cold-cut and herb flavors. It shows very good grip and a level of tannin that suggests it will improve over the next six months or so. While this is a new wine, it is by no means made in a nouveau style. It has guts. It also has a screw cap - a plus for those who prefer to avoid tainted wine.- Michael Dresser
