Medium light garnet color with aromas of strawberry, rose petals, and hints of white pepper. Light bodied with dried red fruit character and minerality on the palate finishing with a bit of light, gritty tannin. Somewhat reminiscent of a cru Beaujolais. Made from 100% Cinsault with no added sulfites aged in neutral oak barrels. Sourced from Bechtold Ranch vineyard in Lodi planted in 1870 on its own roots. 13.32% ABV. $45.

Juicy and bursting with crushed red berries, counterbalanced by perfectly judged, stalky tannins.. Not really complex, but irresistible nonetheless.

Sorry not for me, no real mid palate no finish

Like so many of Abe's wines, there is more to it than one initially suspects. An intriguing combination of mint and plums with fleshy persimmon are present on the first pass. Additional sips reveal a spice and texture that integrate a subtle sweetness of strawberries and musk melon.

Plum compote with baking spices. Vanilla beans, dark cherries, white pepper, and pine on the palate. Texturally intriguing and lower alcohol than many of Abe's wines. Love it!
