Broc Cellars Love Red 2019

California, United StatesBroc Cellars is a self-identified natural winery based in Berkeley, California, home to food and wine icons like Kermit Lynch and Alice Waters. This is a Southern France-inspired blend of carignan (72%), valdiguiƩ (20%), and syrah (8%) from 70+ year old vines in Solano and Mendocino Counties. Using a combination of whole cluster and destemmed fruit, this is aged in neutral French oak and concrete tanks. It shows bright, juicy black fruits with some spice and sappy notes. It has a directness and purity to the fruit that makes this really appealing. The acidity is crisp, and tannins fine, making this a perfect barbecue wine to serve with a light chill. Good thing it's in a can. Recommended.Tasted: 30 March 2021Tasted by: Geoffrey Moss MWPrices: BC 17.00 375 select private retailers Producer: Broc CellarsDistributors: Massey Wines & Spirits Ltd.
