2019 Pastoral Melange
Windmill & Trimble Vineyards - Organic
Our second Pastoral Melange (meaning medley), our name reserved for occasional, unorthodox blends. The 2019 is delicious, gulpable blend of 50% Carbonic Carignan (aka the 2019 "Wiley") from Mendocino, and 50% Cinsault, from the Windmill Vineyard in Yolo County.
If you have tried and loved Wiley, or any of our Carignans, you will love this. Only 11.4% alc, fresh, vibrant, fun on its own, slightly chilled, or with a variety of simple everyday dishes. Sometimes life just needs to be uncomplicated and fun. Vinography seems to agree "..smells of boysenberries and strawberry jam. In the mouth, juicy bright boysenberry and strawberry flavors have a kick, thanks to excellent acidity, which leaves a SweetTart sourness in the finish that is positively mouthwatering. Hints of herbs add complexity, but this definitely hits the “glou glou” bullseye."
Only 50 cases crafted.
