These grapes are from the oldest continuous Cinsault vineyard in the U.S. - the Bechtold vineyard - planted in Lodi's west-side by Joseph Spenker in 1886. It was named the 2014 "Vineyard of the Year" by the California State Fair.
A hot-climate, hand-crafted wine with inky color, bursting with jammy fruit and oak. If you like a big, bold Petite Sirah, you'll love this one. It became an instant favorite in our tasting room. We only produced 50 cases.
Four hot-climate, small-batch, hand-crafted, full-bodied and robust red wines were blended to create Saxton, a tribute to Steve's unique family with storied roots in Oregon and California... just like this unique wine. We only produced 44 cases.
