Ancient Vines Cinsault 2020
This limited-release red comes exclusively from the famed 135-year-old Bechthold Vineyard in Lodi, which is believed to be the oldest surviving Cinsault vineyard in the WORLD. This twenty-five-acre vineyard was planted in 1886 by German immigrant Joseph Spenker and is the oldest continuously farmed vineyard in Lodi. Its own-rooted vines survived phylloxera and thus, produce a very complex expression of this grape, which is commonly used for blending. Very soft red fruit and herbal thyme-like notes with pencil shaving graphite minerality. Truly a treat!
