54% Carignan, 46% Zinfandel
A light, juicy, chillable red from one of Northern California's most impressive natural winemakers.
This wine tastes like a lively hibiscus agua fresca with notes of orange peel and juicy pomegranate. A kitchen chameleon and a balanced blend, Carignan brings savory flavors while juicy Zinfandel brings sweet spices like clove and cinnamon.
Vinification notes: Carignan and Zinfandel, both 100% destemmed, fermented separately and aged in stainless steel tanks for 6 months before blending and bottling. Unfined. Unfiltered. Sediment expected.
Zinfandel from Del Barba Vineyard, Oakley, CA; dry farmed on sand (like walking on a beach).
Carignan from Ricetti Vineyard, Mendocino County; planted in 1948; certified organic; dry farmed on gravelly loam.
