2021 Billy D. Hillbilly Carignan Mendocino 500ml

Regular price $15.00

In Stock: 5

Billy D is Billy Davies, our newest favorite New California producer. You also can enjoy his wines at ACRE next door, so clearly we’re not alone in our enthusiasm. As he says of himself: “Rooted in the adventure days of 60s and 70s Napa Valley, Billy D. remembers the best of times and looks to the future. Old school new.” Hillbilly Carignan is from 90-year old, organically-farmed vines in Mendocino County. Indigenous, whole-cluster fermentation and élevage in neutral oak barrels. Just 20 ppm of SO2 added. 12.5% alcohol and in the easygoing 500ml bottle with a screw-cap and psychedelic goat label. Suitably sour fresh berries, earth, some spice, low tannin, and great acidity. This is a party wine: easy to drink, yet with old-vine depth. Sausages, picnic, concert BYOB.
