CARL'S WILD GRAPE
Named in honor of Winemaker Steve’s father Carl Johnson, this wine originates from the rural countryside where Carl would pick wild grapes to make his first vintages of wild grape wine. The four rows of wild grape vines, planted in our vineyard in 2005, were propagated from the vines that ran along the fence line of Carl’s family farm.
This wild grape wine is among the darkest colored and intensely flavored wines you can find. Its bold flavors and acidity make you understand why wild grape wine is called “wild.” Its acidity serves as the structure that will allow this wine to continue to evolve and mature over time.
This one of a kind, limited production wine provides a deep, rich expression of tannin, dark fruit, and soul. This semi-dry wine has notes of elderberry, blackberry, herbs and nutmeg. Pair with bold foods such as blue cheese, wild game, full-bodies stew, and steak.
