"Aged for six to eight months in old oak after fermentation in ancient, unlined concrete. Transparent crimson. Relatively simple nose at this point but admirably fruity palate. Racy, light, flirtatious ā€“ these wines seem to get progressively fresher with each vintage. Flirtatious and quintessentially 21st century. Iā€™m sure it will continue to improve in bottle. Drink 2018-2027."

Product Description:

"100% Cinsault from 50 year old vines grown in dry-farmed, high elevation vineyards, 1,050 meters (3,445 feet) above sea level. The soil is clay, with a clay and limestone subsoil. The grapes are hand-harvested in small boxes. Fermented in concrete vats with indigenous yeasts, then aged in old oak barrels for 8 months. Minimum amount of sulfur is added at bottling. A profound nose with broad, dusty fruit overlaid by dried-spice flavors. Earthy but clean, persistent finish. An elegant red to serve with hearty dishes. 13.5% alcohol." -- Importer
