2021 Los Chuchaquis Bandido
Negrette is a variety associated with the French southwestern appellation of Fronton—there known for its wines of opaque color and violet, plummy profile.
In California, there are only some ten acres of it planted across the entire state; here, the Negrette comes from the Siletto vineyard in San Benito County. It makes up 80% of this wine, with the latter 20% coming from San Benito Zinfandel, Cabernet Pfeffer, and a bit of Calaveras Albariño rounding it out. Hand-harvested and fermented whole-cluster in an open-top redwood fermenter; three weeks of maceration, then pressed off to age in old barrels for ten months on fine lees. Unfined, unfiltered. Robust fruit, dark bitter herbs, a rustic touch on the edges—California wine without the fuss and fancy ranches.
