This Rhone varietal is dusty rose in color with notes of candied cherry, rhubarb, cedar, and cinnamon stick on the nose. The palate showcases flavors of cranberry, clove, toasted marshmallows, and a hint of vanilla that carries through on an acid-driven finish. This light-bodied, easy drinking wine is fermented in small lots, punched-down by hand up to three times daily, and barrel-aged for 18 months in 50% new French oak. Bottled June 2017.

Winemaker Notes
The Cinsault grape originated in the Rhone Valley of France and is known for being very light in body and is primarily used as a blending grape. We produce this wine with the intention of blending into our red Rhone-Style Blend “The Jetty”. Only 2 barrels selected to bottle alone (for less than 50 cases) before blending the balance into Jetty. Fermented in very small lots then barrel aged for 16 months using 25% new French Oak., bottled Spring 2017.
