"Wine to me is passion. It’s family and friends. It’s warmth of heart and generosity of spirit. Wine is art. It’s culture. It’s the essence of civilization and the art of living."
This Week: Latta Wines, 2012 Grenache, Washington
About Latta Wines:
Beginning as a cellar hand in Washington, Andrew Latta worked his way up in the wine-making world for over 10 years. His interest in wine-making first began when he was just 13 years old. At the beginning of his career, Andrew worked his way through the restaurant world, waiting tables in college while learning as much as he could about wine. He studied as a sommelier, and spent time as a wine director in Phuket, Thailand, then moved to Washington to study more about viticulture and enology. In 2011, Andrew founded his own winery, Latta Wines.
With a vibrant, deep ruby color, this 2012 Grenache is intense and vibrant, and has aromas of bright cherry and raspberry. It exudes a rich sanguine quality with fine-grained sweet tannins.
At the girl & the fig we’d recommend pairing Latta Wines, 2012 Grenache with our mt. lassen trout (three beans, corn, tomato, basil pesto) or steak frites (6-ounce flat iron steak, frites, roasted garlic & herb butter).
At home enjoy with seafood, red meat, or even spicy dishes.
