Onward 2022 Bouquet Rouge, Sunset Blend, North Coast
This is a blend of carbonic Zinfandel from Hill Vineyard and Carignane from Hawkeye Ranch, both in Mendocino, with a winemakers splash of Malvasia Bianca, from Capp Inn Ranch Vineyard site.
As a winemaker I often create to showcase vineyard site or vintage expression, yet sometimes, such as this, I create out of an inspiration for something I want to taste in the glass. This wine is meant to be light on its feet, a summer red.
Having both depth and layers from the blend of carbonic Zinfandel and heritage vine Carignane and a unique twist of freshness and vibrancy from the added Malvasia Bianca…drum roll please, our Bouquet Rouge, Sunset blend was born.
