Broc Cellars Trousseau Noir, 2021, 750ml
This is Broc's fifth vintage making Trousseau after having old Syrah vines at Wirth Ranch grafted over in 2016. The cuttings come from Matthew Rorick Heritage Vineyard where they were propagated from the library in Jackson Vineyard, planted in 1888. The Trousseau and Zinfandel grapes for the 2021 vintage were 100% destemmed and fermented together in open top stainless fermenters. After pressing, the wine was moved into a concrete tank for 6 months. Unfiltered.
Creme de cassis on the nose, plum skin & spice on the palate.
