Ruth Lewandowski 'Boaz' Carignan Blend Mendocino, California 2018
Regular priceSale price
So the book of Ruth is one of those crazy, old testament books in the Bible that is relatively straight forward and applies to life in a way we can all understand even today. Death is the engine of life.
It's also the concept behind Ruth Lewandowski wines, and without getting too spiritual in an online wine description, it is the philosophy and the respect for nature the winemakers employ.
Boaz is one of the dudes in the story of the book of Ruth. It's also a blend of old-vine Carignan, Grenache and Cabernet from the Testa Ranch planted in 1912. The grapes are co-fermented whole cluster. Aged in neutral barrique without SO2 additions. It's a chunky monkey. Full and brambly and powerful but with a good amount of acidity to balance er out.
