2020
United States
California

This co-fermented blend of Grenache and Tannat is grown in a young vineyard planted on a rocky clay soil. Both varieties were picked together and fermented without destemming in open top vats. The fruit was foot crushed, then gently foot-trodden twice daily during fermentation. After a gentle pressing, the wine was aged in Flextank, with a touch of Albariño added. There was one racking before bottling. Lifted aromas of cherry and herbs, very Rhône-like, very Grenache. The Tannat shows itself with an earthy undertone.11.4% alcohol, 121 cases produced.
