Deep brooding leather on a ripe cherry nose. Eastern spices and orange marmalade; pine needles and eucalyptus. Bright and fresh with serious undertones; a mix of spices and orange on an intriguing palate. Alex Krause and John Locke founded Birichino in Santa Cruz in 2008, focused on attaining the perfect balance of perfume, poise, and puckishness. They source grapes from carefully farmed, family-owned, own-rooted 19th and early 20th century vineyards. This blend of Carignan, Grenache and Mourvedre is named after a sea monster from the classical world. Spontaneous fermentation, neutral barrels, unfiltered.
Carignane from Matt and John Shinn in the Mokelumne River section of Lodi, Grenache from the Bessons, and Mourvedre from the Enz family. California
