Cinsault, Bechtold Site by Turley | 2017
Cinsault is a love or hate it grape, and obviously we love it. If you're going to drink Cinsault, then you might as well drink it from California's most historical vineyard, Lodi's Bechtold vineyard which is home to the oldest Cinsault vines in the country (planted in the 1880s!) Crafted by an American legend, Larry Turley, this 2017 is round and spicy, silky and tart with wild red fruits and summer flowers. It's excellent with bbq, smoked meats, and tangy cheeses. No decanting needed, serve between 58-62 (F) into a Burgundy glass.
