2017 Onesta Cinsault, Bechthold Vineyard

Pops with juicy strawberry rhubarb and dark cherry leading to a smooth oaky finish spiked with chocolate and baking spice. Described as Pinot meets Zin in a glass, this medium bodied red is a definite must try.

Tasting Notes

This is an atypical, rich and intense Cinsault that explodes strawberry rhubarb pie in the glass. The 2017 vintage was a challenging year with heat waves in California, but the ancient vines persevered and produced a Cinsault with great concentration - lots of juicy black cherry, rhubarb and plum, with notes of vanilla and mocha from extended barrel aging.

This wine pairs extremely well with roasted chicken, teriyaki salmon, margarita pizza, smoked baby back ribs, and Thanksgiving dinner.

The Bechthold vineyard is the oldest vineyard in the Lodi region, planted in 1886. It is the oldest Cinsault vineyard in the world! The old vines are head trained, organically grown and dry farmed. Onesta is lucky to have a 4.2 acre block on the east side of the vineyard where the weakest vines are planted producing the most concentrated fruit in the whole vineyard.
