Big Basin 2018 Wirz Vineyard Old Vine Carignan (Cienega Valley)

#30 Enthusiast 100 2021
Return to List

Supervibrant, fresh and crunchy aromas of cranberry, crisp cherry and wild forest show on the nose of this bottling from vines that are more than 90 years old. The 87% whole-cluster treatment enhances the palate's tense structure, which frames rustic but lovable flavors of wild red fruit and crumpled red and purple flowers. Matt Kettmann
