ThereAfter Carignan/Mataro Contra Costa County 2018
A terrific “one-off” from talented vineyard managers/winemakers whom are making wines in a truly vitalizing style. The 50/50 blend from the sandy single-vineyard sees 25% whole-cluster partial carbonic, giving a freshness to the 70+ year dry-farmed bush-vines. The combination of both red and black fruits is lifted by potpourri, loganberry and hints of cellar from the 10 months of age in neutral French oak. Only 3 barrels made.
