2018 Défier Carbonic Merlot Coquelicot Vineyard, Santa Ynez Valley 120 cases made
An idea that we manifested for the first time in 2017 in the hope that it might actually work (it did!), we now have the second vintage of fully carbonic, neutral-French-oak-aged organic California Merlot. Inspired by Cru Beaujolais, and constrained by no rules about what we couldn't do, well, we did it again. It defies easy description, but most everyone who's tried it can't stop raving.
Unfined & unfiltered. Natural sediment may occur. 13.7% alcohol.
