Le Clairet The Perfect Red, Broc Cellers 2019 (Claifornia, USA)

Chris Brockway makes wines in a small warehouse in Berkeley, sourcing grapes from natural farmers all over northern California. This wine is 95% Cabernet Sauvignon from Solano County with 10% left whole cluster wild fermented, then pressed off to steel tank. The other 5% is Carignan from 145 year old vines from the Wirth vineyard harvested in 2020 and fermented full carbonic, then added to the Cab tank, then bottled unfiltered with just a touch of sulfur. The result really lives up to the name: medium bodied with dark plum fruit and spice, lifted by a juiciness and a finish that doesn't quit. So good!
