Cinsaut is a major player in the warm climate countries of the Mediterranean from Southern France to North Africa, and Corsica. Still rare in California it achieved notoriety when crossed with pinot noir in a South African hybrid known as pinotage. As in Many Côte du Rhône blends, Adelaida uses it to temper the alcoholic ardor of grenache and bring charm and spice to more masculine varieties. A naturally vigorous variety, it is at its best behavior at lower yields, an ideal feature of our calcareous limestone soils. Harvested in late September the fruit was fermented with native yeast in open top fermenting tanks and aged in large French oak puncheons for 19 months. Deceptively light colored, Adelaida’s Cinsaut has a supple texture with soft tannins and plush berry flavors. Drink now through 2017.
