Wild Child 2020
Mendocino County, CA.
Petite Sirah & Carignan
Juicy, with generous red fruit, pops of tart pomegranate, plush tannins, cherry and cranberry, this is a sexy wine that shines with a slight chill.
The grapes for Wild Child come from two certified organic vineyards in the Redwood Valley. Alex loves to talk about his growers: "The Carignane comes from the Dorn Vineyard, planted in the 1960s, where Randy Dorn continues to dry-farm his 7-ish acres in the CCOF certified-organic style. And the Petite Sirah comes from Upton Vineyard, farmed by John and Jan Upton, where the 25 acres under vine were also planted in the 1960s."
