100% Cinsault from vines planted on their own roots 140 years ago in the middle of Lodi Superb! This release is the pinnacle of this wine. We feel that we have never experienced a similar conjunction of absolute grace and power. Like the Prince, it is lighter in color than usual. But it is also lighter in body-- the wine is weightless and has the agility of ballet dancer. Yet it is utterly complex and long. It is a perfect example of how lightness in a red wine is not necessarily at the expense of power or depth-- and, even more important to us-- how power need not interfere with transparency and grace. 100% whole-cluster; fermented in puncheon with the Courier protocol of undisturbed floating cap, for nearly 4 weeks. Then aged without interference or intervention for 12 months in neutral oak. In spite of its lightness, the wine will age well and long. Think not Lodi, but Volnay.
