Unturned Stone The Rhythm Section Red, 2021, 750ml
Dry farmed in deep, red loam soils, Castañon Vineyard sits at 400 feet above the north shore of Lake Mendocino in the Redwood Valley AVA. José Castañon bought the ranch in 1993 and planted Zinfandel to accompany the original Carignan vines from the 1960’s. For The Rhythm Section, we ferment the Carignan whole-cluster with Zinfandel destemmed on top. Rich and fruity with a core of pleasing acidity, the wine is medium weight on the palate, a lovely deep garnet color and displays flavors of red plum, cranberries and earth.
