Saitone Vineyard

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.
