An approachable and fruit-forward table blend:

This wine began with a by-product of our 2018 Dry Rose production, which is made from De Chaunac (a red hybrid grape). When the grapes are pressed, the juice that is first pressed out is pink because the red pigments of De Chaunac are found in the skins of the grape rather than the pulp. As the grapes are pressed harder and harder, the juice becomes more darkly colored, eventually growing too dark for Rose. The winemaker ferments that hard press fraction of De Chaunac juice separately. At harvest's end in 2018, we had 132 gallons of De Chaunac red wine: what to do with it? 

We sourced and blended lots of Marechal Foch and Vincent wines from Swedish Hill for a fruit forward style that we enjoyed most. To that blend, we added a few barrels of our Overlook Cabernet Franc for a touch of vinifera character. 

This wine is vegan.
