Alicante Bouschet is Sonoma Valley’s dark house varietal. Not surprisingly the grape is found in every old-vine field blended vineyard across the state of California. It is classically identified by its red pulp, large clusters,oval shaped berries, and vibrantly red foliage. Our Alicante is a perfect blend between Liquid Amber Vineyard and Bedrock Vineyard.
