Grenache (known as Garnacha in Spain) and Syrah (Shiraz in Australia) are two complementary grape varieties that are blended in France, Spain and the New World. Their combination has been one of the most successful red wine marriages, and is at the core of the famous Chateauneuf-du-Pape blend.
Napa Valley, an hour's drive north of San Francisco, California, is the most famous and prestigious wine region anywhere in the New World. Although a number of grape varieties are grown in the valley's vineyards, the area is particularly known for its Cabernet Sauvignon. The classic 'Napa Cab', the archetypal Napa Valley wine, is a rich, oak-aged red with aromas of blackcurrant, boysenberry, liquorice, vanilla and smoky, bittersweet chocolate.
Situated immediately north of San Pablo Bay, the valley runs roughly SE - NW for approximately 35 miles (57km) between the Vacas and Mayacamas mountain ranges (to the east and west respectively). The scenic 40-minute drive between the Napa and Calistoga townships passes through some of the most valuable viticultural real estate on Earth.... more
