UC Davis graduate Michele d’Aprix is a rapidly rising star in the wine world. After completing her studies in California, she made her way to Bordeaux where she took advantage of the opportunity to be mentored by renowned winemaker Stephane Derenoncourt, before branching out to start her own project in St. Emilion, named Pentimento. Now she has expanded even further, crafting three wines from Costières de Nîmes, the southernmost of the Rhône winegrowing regions. Accorded AOC status in 1986, Costières de Nîmes boasts exceptional gravely soils and a Mediterranean climate that lend the wines juicy ripeness and earthy character, but remains just under the radar enough to yield some great values – like this! "Caz" translates to "crazy in a good way", and her wines are crazy good: honest, juicy, and pure. This medium-bodied blend of grenache, mourvèdre, and syrah offers brambly flavors of black raspberry and black cherry accented by Herbes de Provence and pink pepper. Sustainably grown, vegan.
