Ryme 2014 Carignane
The Testa vineyard is a special place just north of Ukiah in Mendocino County. It is cared for by Rusty and Maria Martinson, the fourth generation family to farm these vines. The 90-year old Carignane vines are organic and dry-farmed among other very old vine blocks of Grenache and Petite Sirah. The deep cobbly loam soils and warm continental Mendocino climate are ideal for the rugged and verdant craggy old vines.
