This wine feels very Italian, it feels like visiting a well staged house. There is so much tension and energy, with high acid tones and loads of generous fruit. There is blackberry and raspberry bramble, sandalwood, and a little man musk that I am really into. Aaron said he thinks this is his “AHA” wine about Lodi. A full spectrum cornucopia of fruit. Are you flirting with me? 

The grapes were fermented 100% whole cluster using native yeasts and aged in neutral French oak. Unfined, unfiltered, vegan. 

4 barrels produced. 

2021 Perlegos Cinsaut



Cinsaut, a grape with a history as intriguing as its flavors, has been on a journey through the world of wine for centuries. Originating in the South of France, it was once a prized grape in the famed Châteauneuf-du-Pape blends. However, it embarked on a global adventure, finding its way to places like South Africa, where it’s known as “Hermitage” and thrives in the warm climate. When you taste Cinsaut, you’re in for a delightful surprise. Its flavors are like a burst of red berries and plums, often accompanied by a hint of spiciness. With its bright acidity and soft tannins, Cinsaut makes for an approachable, easy-drinking red wine that’s perfect for a casual evening with friends. It’s a reminder that wine, like history, is a tapestry woven with diverse and flavorful threads. 🍇🍷🌍
