2018 Some Girls, Natural Cinsault, Sierra Foothills
We went au naturel for the very first time.
Harnessing the power of Carbonic Maceration, we created a bright natural red wine for you to savor through the Autumnal Equinox.
After scoring Cinsault from the highly-elevated and highly-acclaimed Snows Crossing Vineyard in El Dorado, California our winemaking team felt inspired to capture the fresh, fruitful characteristics of the grapes and decided to ferment them via Carbonic Maceration. This process of natural winemaking can be weird and geeky, so if you want to indulge, we got you down below.
Our label for this unique limited-production wine features a photograph of the top of a hand-painted female mannequin from the 1960s. A cool thrift store find, we became captivated by the personality of this vintage piece. With a brightly-painted face, pink lips, and alluring aqua eyes, she reminds us that Some Girls, the cool ones at least, dance to the beat of their own drum. We believe that being different is good, and that we don’t always have to conform. We can grow, dream, and be anything we want.
To keep it weird and different we hand-dipped these suckers, allowing the wax to melt down the sides of the glass to create a unique look for each individual bottle.
Marching to her own beat.
