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.
Fruit for this wine comes from the storied Kirschenmann Vineyard, on the east side of Lodi's Mokelumne River AVA, which was planted in 1915 in silica rich, white sandy soils.
Notes of black tea, violets and red cherry, with long, silky tannins.
