2017 Cinsault

Ancient Vine

NEW!

This special 125 case lot (our largest release ever)) 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.

The 2017 is the lightest, prettiest release ever, picked earlier, weighing in at 11.8% alc - a perfect candidate for the hot "crushable" red emerging category - wines that you drink with a slight chill, and go down wayyyyy to easy.

Always 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 8 months, then bottled.  A thought provoking wine Eric Asimov of the NY Times called “pure, deep, ... super delicious.” 

This will is available to the general public for a very brief time, then will be Flock Club only.
