Deep brick red, purple color. Perfectly ripe red raspberry, strawberry and floral aromas. Fruit flavors of spicy tart cherries, fraise des bois strawberry, bramble berry and black plums. Rich full body, lingering finish.
2008 was a ripe balanced year and the grapes maintained good acids.
Cinsaut is a rare delicious Rhone variety with only 7 acres planted in Sonoma County. It is most often found as a minor component of some Rhone wines. This Frick Cinsaut is grown in the Dry Creek Valley of Sonoma County. Characteristics of the grape are large olive shaped berries, lush sweet fruit flavors and very soft tannin.
Located on the dry, western bench of Dry Creek Valley, these head pruned (not trellised) cinsaut vines grow in medium red, dusty clay soil. Non-irrigated (dry farmed) the vineyard contains only 2 acres cinsaut. The middle-aged 52 years old vines yield a small amount of this fragrant, fruity grape all destined for Frick cinsaut wine.
This wine is full bodied with the classic cinsaut cherry and strawberry flavor and aromas that carry through to spice on the dry soft finish. Round full fruity flavor impressions run through. This wine is 100% cinsaut.
