2019 Rock Ridge Carmenere
Made from grapes grown at the Rock Ridge Vineyards in Valley Center, CA. Owned by Connie and Stephen Roberts, the Rock Ridge Vineyards are a collection of bi lateral cordon pruned and head trained vines that have been brought back to life from a steady decline. With the help of vineyard guru, Luke McCollum and crew, these vines have produced their first 100% Carménère produced by Hungry Hawk Vineyards and Winery. This first 100% Rock Ridge Vineyards Carménère is deep purple in color with rustic aromas of dark berries laced with mocha and black pepper. On the palate, the berries follow with a chewy frame of velvet cocoa and an earthy minerality. Truly a magnificent bottling of teamwork at it's finest!
