From the famed 135 year old Bechthold Vineyard in Lodi, the oldest surviving Cinsault Vineyard in the world. This dry farmed, organic vineyard has very low yield, and produces a very complex expression of this variety, normally best as a blending grape.
Always 100% whole cluster, foot tread, fermented with native yeast in small ½ ton bins. Gently pressed to neutral barrel to age on heavy lees for 10 months, then bottled.
2 barrels, 50 cases crafted
