Ā Tasting Notes:

Brilliant red. Warm earthy fruit aromas. Ripe blackberriy, raspberriy, plum, cherry and cola. Round full fruit flavors contribute to the body with flinty tannin in a long lingering dry finish.

Ā The Grapes:Ā Ā Counoise, Carignane and Cinsaut are the grape varieties that make up this blend. 40% cinsaut, 40% carignane, 20% counoise.

The Vineyards:Ā Counoise is from Frick's Estate Owl Hill Vineyard, on the southeast-facing hillsides near the winery.Ā  This tiny vineyard grows in rock, gravel and clay from decomposed Dry Creek Conglomerate soil.Ā  In this soil the vines have very low vigor.

Cinsaut & Carignane Old bench land vineyard in the center of Dry Creek Valley. The vines are head pruned in this classic vineyard with red earth soil.

The Wine: An original Frick blend of three obscure red Rhone grape varieties that start with the letter ā€œcā€. These three grapes come together beautifully to create a complex delicious wine. Aged 23 months in small neutral oak barrels. Unfined/ unfiltered.
