Las Jaras

Nouveau 2020


Las Jaras first Nouveau-- made this year to help avoid smoke taint caused by the wildfires! This young, fruit filled, chillable red is meant to be drunk NOW. Super juicy with vibrant acid and just enough tannin to keep it all balanced. 20% of sales will benefit the California Wildfire Relief Fund.

We love it with… 🥡🍔🍗

Type: Red
Vintage: 2020
Size: 750ml
ABV: 12%
Grape: 41% Charbono, 31% Zinfandel, 18% Carignan, 10% Petite Syrah
Region: Gary Venturi Vineyard, Mendocino County, California
Vinification: Farmed organically; made using Jules Chauvet’s “true carbonic” method to avoid picking up smoke that may have been present on the skins of the grapes. In this method, the juice that seeps out of the clusters is drained from the tanks each day. This keeps the juice from staying in contact with the stems and skins, thus extracting too much tannin and color and making a bigger wine than intended. All juice drained down daily was fermented separately and then blended.
