Russian River Valley, Sonoma
We have sourced from the Saitone Vineyard's head trained 130 year old Carignane vines for 4 years now. The Huchica loam soil brings depth to this variety without being overly heavy. It seems to tame the Carignane and bring a zen-like component to the grapes through higher acid levels. Flavors of cranberry, and raspberry shine through with a very spicy bramble component. and layered complexity. Why do we source here? For the love of Old Vine Carignane.
