This unique old vine field blend is vinified from grapes picked from two single vineyard sites on November 6th, 2018 (post frost). From the Casa Verde vineyard, planted in 1944, we harvested a field blend of old vine Carignane, Grenache and French Colombard. Casa Verde is dry farmed and certified organic with 75-year-old, head-pruned vines, planted on alluvial loam soils. These low-yielding vines produce small clusters (averaging one to two tons per acre) that impart firm structure and refreshing acidity to the blend. This incredibly unique fruit is complemented by a percentage of Grenache from the Niemi Vineyard, where red soils with volcanic influence yield grapes with a plush and jammy character that adds weight, texture, and ripeness to the final blend.
ABV % = 15.2
