Chris James 2017 Lagrein
The Lagrein grapes are grown on Chris James’s vineyard in Yamhill-Carlton AVA. Lagrein is a northern Italian varietal originating from the Alto Adige region. Now that it has been in bottle for ~3 years the wine has integrated and is really quite exciting.
This wine is really unique: super dark color with loads of tannin and acid. It has aromas and flavors of black berries and dark cherries.
This pairs well with variety of Italian food.
