An adventurous and unusual wine with terroir in spades. 100% Cinsault from 134 year-old dry-farmed vines from the Bechthold vineyard in Lodi. Think wild-looking, untrellised, towering vines gnarly with age. Cinsault is a red grape, but this wine was pressed off the skins quickly, resulting in a coppery wine that is somewhere between a blanc de noir and a rosé, with the name meaning "rosy-fingered." It's bright and dry on the palate, with hints of berries and cherries balanced with notes of leather and ozone on the finish.
