Region: Madera, CA
Type: Red Wine
NEW PRODUCER: Love Ranch Vineyard is located in a small sub-region of the Madera AVA called the Madera Foothills, just south of Yosemite Valley. Organic farming. Granite schist soils. Native fermentation (20% whole cluster). The skis were pressed to tank, racked to neutral barrels and aged for 10 months. Bottled unfined and unfiltered with very minimal sulfur.
Aromas of petals, rose hips, and redwood forest. The palate is lush but light, with notes of fresh mission fig, sage, and blackberry patch, soft tannins, and a lingering mineral finish.
