Vineyard notes

This west side Lodi Carignan vineyard was planted in 1906, the year of the Great San Francisco earthquake, giving the vineyard its name. Mostly planted to Carignan (although we believe there might be a few unique vines scattered throughout the vineyard), this is as old school as it gets. Ancient head trained vines, widely spaced, are left unbothered in a site that is almost never tilled or watered; tough to walk through but beautiful. These vines have watched the world change around them and they still have a lot to say.


Cellar notes


Grapes are brought into the cellar and gently placed into an open-top fermenter. Clusters are left whole and allowed to go through carbonic maceration over a period of about three weeks. The fruit is then foot-tread and pressed into neutral French oak barrels. The wine is allowed to rest for six months before bottling.

Tasting Notes:

Fresh and dark-fruited, this wine is all spunk and attitude. Bay leaf and sage add a savory element that helps to lift the aromatic profile of the wine even further. All this is carried by Carignan’s hearty and earthy nature. Brawny but still light, this wine can be enjoyed now or held for 7-15 years.
