From the Winery:
Likely the most “Outré Vin” in the lineup, a vinous Californian pastiche inspired by our reverence of the wines of the French Alps- Trousseau Noir, Poulsard, Gamay Noir, and yes (untraditionally) some old vine Valdiguie as well.
Emerging from several risk-taking vineyards dotted abound Northern California this takes a general California wine designation, but be clear, you would not blind this as “California”. Fermented partially carbonic for brightness and all whole cluster adding to the complex spice aromas. Delicate and lean, mineral-driven, tart pomegranate and raspberry scented with incense and tobacco.
