A medium bodied wine from our Bechthold vineyard planted in 1886. This wine unfolds into vibrant cherry and soft, silky tannins.
Our Ancient vine Cinsault is referred to as the oldest of its kind planted in the late 1800s, Nestled in the Mokelumne River area of Lodi, the organically dry farmed vineyard with head-trained vines make for a one of a kind experience
The wine is harvested, and a few months later is barreled down to French oak barriques where it adds character and extra layers. then gets barreled earlier than other reds in order to keep the freshness, makes for an incredible historic wine.
Cinsault, which tends be low in tannin is generally used to add aromatics and spicy component to Southern Rhone Valley style wine blends. perfumed, elegant, finessed, refreshing red fruit
