Bold Wine Company Carignan Old Vines Redwood Valley 2019

Description

Redwood Valley at a higher elevation and cooler temperature than much of surrounding Mendocino County, Redwood Valley has warm days and intensely cold nights, leading to a long ripening season that often lasts into November. The winemaking tradition here goes back to the mid-1800s, with small plots of original plantings from that era. Vincenzo Vineyard First planted in 1918, Vincenzo is owned and cared for by the grandchildren of the original farmer. Organic and dry-farmed since its planting, the old-vine head-trained vines here are remarkably healthy and yield intensely flavored wines. Elevage Hand-harvested at night. Upon entering the winery, the grapes are hand-sorted, whole cluster into a 2-ton stainless steel lagar and foot-stomped. A native yeast fermentation takes place outside the winery, exposed to the cold Pacific Ocean air. After an extended post-ferment maceration, the wine is pressed off into neutral barrique. After 15 months, the wine is racked and bottled unfined and unfiltered.
