The grapes for this blend are grown on old vines and sourced from vineyards in Mendocino and Sonoma Counties. All the grapes were manually harvested. Each variety went through its own separate, slightly different winemaking process in order to bring out the desired expression of the fruit. The Carignan, Zinfandel, and Cabernet were hand-sorted at the crusher. There was no sulfur added, and only native fermentation in open-top fermenters. Some of the Carignan lots were 20% and others were 50% whole cluster, while other lots were destemmed entirely. The Cabernet and Zinfandel were each 100% destemmed. Carbonic Maceration was used for the Charbono.
Beautiful, deep ruby color. Fruity, well-balanced, and elegant on the palate, with notes of sour cherry, plum, and blackberry, and spice.
