2019 Cluster Carbonic Grenache Estate
This is our fourth vintage of Cluster, and we are blown away by her beauty! Ruben’s careful farming of our Estate Grenache provided a harvest of healthy fruit perfectly set on their clusters. Angela chose to respect his work by fermenting our Cluster Grenache, using perfectly intact grape clusters. The approach is called whole cluster, or carbonic, fermentation, hence the name of the wine. The effect is a zesty freshness and a wonderfully energetic palate, a wine full of presence while remaining relatively light-bodied. This is a fun and festive wine, perfect for any occasion.

This an incredibly fun, fresh, and exciting red, and showcases the incredible fruity and juicy deliciousness that carbonic maceration can uniquely facilitate. Not the slightest bit weighty or extracted, rather it expresses terrific purity and ripeness while retaining incredible freshness and finesse. This is an unquestionably enjoyable and delicious creation from a wonderful Santa Barbara County producer.
