Venturi Vineyard  ·  Mendocino County  ·  215 cases produced

This is one of those aroma-driven wines that you fall in love with when you smell, and then surprises you on the palate (in a great way). Nose is rich: dried tart cherry, berry jam, wet stone. Palate is very dry: orange peel, great acidity, and very minimal, dusty tannins. This is a light bodied, ageable Carignan.

From one of California’s historic head-trained, dry farmed vineyards:

Planted 1948. Farmed by 3rd generation Larry Venturi. This is Larry’s most interesting parcel—covered in fist-sized stones, this old riverbed contains quartz, shale, and sandstone. Fermented whole cluster with daily foot treading. Month long maceration. 18 months élevage in neutral oak barrels.

We want your wine to arrive in its tasty natural state, which means we will not expose it to high temperatures in transit ~ Due to summer heat all UPS ground out-of-state shipments will be held at winery until weather permits ~ Unfortunately we are unable to ship to North Dakota, New Hampshire and Utah at any time of year.
