Red, purple color. Strawberry, cherry and flint aroma. Zippy cherry, strawberry
and spice flavors. Lingering fruit complexity. Medium-full body. A terrific,
delicious, fun to drink red wine with a great personality.
Strawberry-cherry fruit character, spice on the finish.
This is a rare varietal with a small production in California and at
Frick Winery. The
wine is very versatile, fun and easy to drink and very accessible and likable. The
complexity and abundance of fruit is the wonderful character of the wine. Cinsaut
will improve any meal it is served with. Particularly good with bird and
game. A real charmer.

On A high, dry, western bench of Dry
Creek Valley, the head pruned Cinsaut vines grow in a medium red, dusty
clay soil. Covering only 2 acres,
the old vines yield a small amount of this fragrant, fruity grape for
Frick Cinsaut. The vines are about 40 years old.
