Vinca Minor, Los Carneros Cabernet Sauvignon, 2019
Los Carneros, Sonoma, California
Vinca Minor is a natural winery located in Berkeley, California owned by Jason Edward Charles and Emily O'Hara Charles. Vinca Minor started as a way to explore the intersection between farmer, winemaker and artist. They work exclusively with small growers producing fruit from organic, dry-framed, old vines—primarily in Mendocino.
In the cellar, they make wine as naturally as possible, always working with indigenous yeast, never filtering or fining. Their bottles feature label artwork from local artists as a way to not only showcase their work but highlight the vibe of the juice inside.
Beautiful old vine Cabernet Sauvignon tucked away on the Sonoma side of Los Carneros. Farmed organically by Diego and Shaun of Les Lunes Wines. Fermented with natural yeasts and aged for 9 months in old French oak barrels. Bright crunchy red fruits and soft tannins.
