Carignan/Zinfandel  ·  330 cases produced

This is a zippy, glou glou version of a traditional California red blend:

At only 11.3% alcohol this wine showcases all of the raspberry, hibiscus, and rhubarb zing that these two grapes can exhibit when picked on the fresher side. This is the perfect chillable red you’ll be grabbing for as the weather starts warming up.

Carignan (65%). Planted 1948. Head-trained, dry-farmed. Mediterranean climate. Venturi Vineyard, Mendocino County AVA. Sandstone/quartz. Whole cluster, foot stomped fermentation and aged in neutral oak for 6 months.

Zinfandel (35%). Planted in the 60’s, these head-trained, dry farmed vines are the youngest in the historic Del Barba vineyard in Contra Costa County. Grown in pure sand. Imagine walking on the beach—that’s what the soil is like in this vineyard.  Destemmed and aged in stainless steel for 6 months to preserve freshness.

11.3% alc/vol

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.
