Sampling the juices, I enjoyed the complexity of the Pinot Noir, lingering over the cherry, blackberry, and cinnamon notes in a way one could never do with plain old Welch's. I found it a little sweet to serve with dinner but the jammy flavor was a nice complement to creamy cheese. Even sweeter was the Gewürztraminer grape juice, which has notes of lychee and rose. I preferred it cut with sparkling water, and this would be lovely with a light brunch or dessert. The Gewürztraminer would also make a fantastic granita. In addition to the drinking juices, Navarro makes an outstanding verjus from unripe grapes. With its tart, green apple flavor, Verjus is typically used in cooking, but it can also be mixed with sparkling water to make a refreshing "vintner's lemonade."
