1MN Bechtold Ranch Cinsault 2015

Funky barnyard, floral, perfumed nose, quickly transforms into an earthy ripe red berry nose, oak, baking spice. Almost like a pinot noir.
On the palate, dry, red berries, well integrated tannins, high acidity, mushroom, crispy autumn leaves, forest floor, slight saline finish. I like!

Bonny Doon Vineyard

Cinsault Counoise 2018

100% Cinsault

Fruit from historic 140 year old Bechtold Vineyard in Lodi. 13.4% ABV

this year, Ive had a few bottles of Cinsault from this vineyard from a few different wine makers. The Bonny Doon release has been the most fruit forward and super enjoyable.
