Type: Red Wine
Sandlands is owned by Tegan Passalacqua (Turley Vineyards). Since its launch in 2010, he has made some of California’s most original and sought-after wines. The line-up encompasses the forgotten classic California varieties, primarily grown in decomposed granite (sand), from regions and vineyards that have been farmed for many generations but have remained somewhat outliers of California viticulture.
This blend comes from three of the oldest California vineyards and is in equal parts Cinsault from the Bechthold Vineyard (planted in 1886), Carignane from Spenker Ranch (1900), and Zinfandel from Kirschenmann Vineyard (1915), the winery's home ranch in Victor, CA.
Notes of notes of black cherry, apricot, and black tea, with a long, velvety finish.
