Venturi Carignan - 2018
Fluttering acidy and dizzying grace  — the way it felt to see your girlfriend after a whole summer of long distance.

Martha’s gift is to make wines that feel more observed than imagined. She works her magic here with the long-overlooked Carignan, a Spanish grape that found its way to Mendocino with the waves of European immigration beginning the turn of the 20th century. Venturi Vineyard was planted in 1948 in an ancient quartz-flecked riverbed. Martha's approach in the cellar is characteristically hands-off, creating a light-bodied red that’s both ethereal and down to earth.
