GRAPE: Humagne REGION: Valais COUNTRY: Switzerland AVE PRICE: $46
I typically love Alpine wines. This an interesting wine. But on this day it wasn’t my favorite. This wine is made from a Swiss grape called Humagne Rouge (Cornalin). The grape is originally from Aosta Valley in Italy but now primarily grown in the Valais region of Switzerland.This particular wine is light in color, earthy, a bit rustic and has a solid structure. You can taste some cherry. You’ll get a touch herbal and peppery notes like in a Syrah, and at moments even reminded me ever so slightly of a well structured Pinot Noir.
