The 2020 is made up of 75% rosé of carignan from Mendocino’s Poor Ranch, colored up with a touch of syrah from Sumu Kaw Vineyard, located in the Sierra Foothills. Both vineyards are farmed organically. The carignan was destemmed, foot tread, pressed, and then left to ferment in neutral oak. The syrah portion was fermented 50% whole-cluster. Each lot spent a few months in barrel before being blended up in tank. We bottled 60 cases, unfined and unfiltered, in March of 2021.
