Farmstrong Field Claret Mendocino County

Modeled after the classic “Clairet” of Bordeaux, which were Bordeaux red blends that were more moderate in tannin, often blended with Malbec to craft a softer wine, the Farmstrong Field Claret is a field blend of grapes picked on the same day, from the same family vineyard, and then co-fermented (all fermented in the same tank together). It’s a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Malbec & Petit Verdot from the Johnson Family Home Ranch in Ukiah, CA (

The vineyard is farmed sustainably, and is certified Fish Friendly Farming.

After harvest, the grapes were de-stemmed, and fermented together in an open-top fermenter. The extraction from the skins was a combination of pump overs and punch downs to moderately mange the extraction of tannins and keep them in balance with the acid and flavors. The wine was pressed off from the skins after 14 days and aged for 8 months in neutral French oak barrels. Unfined, and filtered prior to bottling.
