Wine of the Day

Bastardo (aka Trousseau)

Sometimes misidentified as Petite Sirah on California wine labels, this red wine grape is actually entirely different, not widely grown, and most typically used for making fortified wines such as Port. The ripe grapes tend to be high in sugar leading to wines with high alcohol, deep red color and cherry flavors.
