Bright violet color. High-pitched aromas of strawberry and raspberry are given depth by licorice and black tea nuances. Bright and lively on the palate, which offers tangy red fruit flavors and a seamless texture. Shows very good energy on the finish, which lingers with strong spicy intensity.

Carignan (which constitutes 97% of the Lioco Indica red) is a grape variety rarely taken seriously as a backbone for fine wines. Only Spain’s Priorat region banks heavily on Carignan, where the old vines produce wines of inky concentration and sometimes over-the-top ripeness (some of these wines have made me think of alcoholic Welch’s concentrate). That’s why a wine like this is at once refreshing and somewhat shocking. Not a blockbuster by any means, this subtle wine whispers its charm at you. The strawberry and dark cherry fruit is forward and very ripe, but still delicate with a sense of gracefulness. With air, anise and mineral character –– cold steel, wet stone –– complement the fruit, even as a savory meaty note (like a whiff of dry-aged steak) rounds out the complex nose. If I were tasting this blind, I would be absolutely certain it was Pinot Noir (and in my hubris, I might even try to specify a region such as Carneros). For those who love elegant, perfumed, and ripe-fruited Pinot Noir.


Winemaker's Notes:

An "old-timey" field blend harkening back to California's earliest winemaking efforts. A blend of old-vine Carignan (97%), Grenache (1%), and Petite Sirah (2%) from a selection of cool benchland vineyards in Mendocino’s Redwood Valley. Fermented in stainless-steel with wild yeasts. Aged 15-months in neutral barrels. Bottled without fining or filtration. 1600 cases produced
