    100% Ungrafted 140 year old California Cinsault! This wine is weightless and has the agility of ballet dancer: it is a perfect example of how lightness in a red wine is not necessarily at the expense of power or depth. 100% whole cluster fermented in puncheon with an undisturbed floating cap for nearly 4 weeks. Aged without interference or intervention for 12 months in neutral oak. In spite of its lightness, the wine will age well and long. An elegant wine, utterly complex with a beautiful dance of a finish.
