Planted in 1918, 70 miles inland from Los Angeles and certified organic by CCOF, this vineyard is part of California history. The vines are farmed without irrigation in granite rocks and sandy soil surrounded by freeways and track homes. This vineyard is one of the last reminders of an old California. The Palomino grapes were harvested on August 4th, foot tread to soak on skins for 6 days before being pressed. The juice fermented with native yeast in old french oak barrels and aged on lees for 8 months. This wine was bottled with minimal SO2 and without fining or filtration.
Think burnt sugar, candied ginger, rich texute, with some rock & roll acidity
