The 2018 Monkey Jacket is aromatic, light on its feet and refreshing, all of which make it an absolute joy to drink now. Perfumed floral notes and sweet crushed red berry fruit add to a feeling of freshness. In 2018, yields were a bit higher for the Valdiguié, so it is more prominent in the blend than in years past.

This is the flagship wine from Cruse Wine Co. Made up of 51% Valdiguié, 13% Carignan, 10% Syrah, 8% Pinot Noir and other mixed reds, it was made using about 20% whole cluster and bottled unfiltered. The 2018 Monkey Jacket has a nose reminiscent of cru Beaujolais—peppered salami, blueberries, gravel dust, dried savory herbs, crushed granite and bright red cherries and berries with smoky/mineral touches. The savory, earthy palate is light to medium-bodied, very soft and juicy, finishing savory. (EB)
