Broc Cellars- Old Vine Carignan 2018
Varieties: 85% Carignan, 10% Alicante, 4% Zinfandel, 1% Palomino
The berries remain intact and protected with a constant blanket of C02 until their native yeasts begin to ferment the grape sugars from the inside out. A slow mortification breaks down the color components in the skins, infusing the juice inside the still-unbroken berries with a vibrant red hue. When fully dry, it is pressed back into the concrete vessels for aging. Bottled after 8 months of aging. This wine shows the amazing depth of flavor from these rugged, ancient vines.
