Youth of the Beast Carignan 2019





Production Notes

Carignan is one of our favorite grapes, and Blue Ox’s — light-bodied with mellow tannins — would make a great primer. The grapes come from the organic, dry-farmed Ricetti Vineyard in Mendocino on Redwood Valley’s eastern bench. Josh and Noah ferment the wine using a semi-carbonic method which makes the wine fun and approachable — a red with the rebellious spirit of a rosé.

Youth of the Beast Carignan - 2019
Juicy with a red-fruited zing that takes us back to the beaches of our youth, hunting for beach plums in the dunes.
