Three Old Vines Field Blend 2016, Contra Costa County, California

Three Wine Company is much more than a business. It is a family winery focused on sustainable growing, coupled with a hands-on wine experience. Winemaker Matt Cline’s philosophy is that: the dirt, the micro-climate, and sustainable wine growing (from vineyard to bottle) form the cornerstone of good winemaking, and is in every bottle three produces. This Old Vines Field Blend is a luscious combination of ancient-vine Carignane, Zinfandel, Petite Sirah, Mataro, Alicante Bouschet and Black Malvoisie. Each of these varietals contributes to the deep purple/black color and piercing, high-toned aromas of boysenberry violets and dark plum. Massive on the attack, showing off all of its 100+ year-old-vine pedigree. Packed with crushed black fruits and black cherry liquer, the finish remains firm and vibrant. 2016 Blend: 44% Carignane, 19% Mataro, 17% Zinfandel, 14% Petite Sirah, 4% Alicante Bouschet, 2% Black Malvoisie.
