2015 Cinsault

Ancient Vine

This special 75 case lot from the famed 135 year old Bechthold Vineyard in Lodi, is believed to be the oldest surviving Cinsault Vineyard in the world. This dry farmed, organic vineyard has very low yield, and produces a very complex expression of this variety, normally best as a blending grape.

100% whole cluster, foot tread, fermented with native yeast in small ½ ton bins. Gently pressed to neutral barrel to age on heavy lees for 9 months, then bottled.  A thought provoking wine Eric Asimov of the NY Times called “pure, deep, ... super delicious.”  13.3% alc
