Le Artishasic crafts high quality, site-driven wines only working with small family growers. Vintner and winemaker, Artie Johnson, believes and utilizes the practice of minimal intervention as the vineyard terroirs are diverse and offer great character in the bottle without having to manipulate the grapes in the winery. This 2019 Old Vine Carignan comes from Redwood Valley in Mendocino County. The vines are over 70-years old and yield about two tons per acre. The roots go 30-40 feet down in sandy loam soils to search for water. Artie selected the highest elevated section of this vineyard, providing even more prominent drainage for these old vines. This 2019 offers silky tannins while maintaining balanced acidity. It is layered, with fine grained tannins and a long complex finish. Aromas of violet and baking spices complement the notes of black cherry and dark red fruit. 225 cases were produced.
