2007 Bodegas Paso Robles Graciano$29.95 -- 2007 Bodegas Paso Robles Graciano
Graciano is now considered a rare Spanish grape. At one time it was one of four major red varietals in the Rioja region, where it was blended with Tempranillo to produce well-aging, complex and sophisticated wines. Graciano is even rarer in California -- in the annual Department of Food & Agriculture grape purchase statistics only two counties reported sales in 2008. Most viticulturists who grow this varietal use it in their own blends and itís been difficult to find any grown commercially. The vines are prolific and must be constantly controlled, but the grape yields are normally low, with a high-quality, flavorful berry.
