William Grassie Wine List 


The courageux is a Rhone Style red blend of 67% Cabernet Sauvignon, 19% Merlot, 9% Malbec, 3% Cabernet Franc, and 2% Petit Verdot.

Aaron: This is a solid bottle we’ve been saving.  Lots of oak and wheat on the nose followed by red currants.  The flavor was enjoyable, full but smooth and no bite.  There were tons of rich, fruit flavors with black cherry and other red fruits.  I wanted some vanilla to round out the finish but overall, very appealing.  91 points

Teri: Juicy nose and body with flavors of blackberry, currant, bing cherry, and sweet oak. This wine is jam-packed with flavor but carries tannins that sit nicely and are extremely enjoyable. Great wine! Enough so that I would go back and purchase another bottle the next time we are in the area. 93 points
