2018 Post & Vine Old Vine Field Blend - Testa Vineyard
In Stock: 3
Post & Vine is the personal, passionate project of Rebekah Wineburg, whose day job is as winemaker for Quintessa. For Post & Vine, she seeks out old-vine, dry-farmed vineyards and makes transparent, elegant wines that are great quality-price ratio. Rebekah also worked at Paul Marcus Wines in the 2000s, after she finished her Viticulture and Enology degree at U.C. Davis; we’re delighted to have her “back” at the shop in this new guise! This old-vine (planted in the 1950s) field blend is mostly zinfandel, carignane, and grenache from the organically and biodynamically farmed Testa vineyard in Redwood Valley (Mendocino County). Soils are volcanic. 18 months of aging in used barrels. Dark fruits and spices, along with the excellent texture and notable but fine-grained tannins that the vineyards is known for.
