Here’s another stellar entry from the prolific Andrew Jones, a Paso Robles-based viticulturist by day, a driven winemaker off-duty utilizing fruit he encounters in his work. Andrew’s portfolio includes Fiction Red Wine and Pinot Gris, Wonderwall wines and Hinterland, among others. All are made in small lots—like this month’s selection. . .just 525 cases were produced. His 2014 Field Recordings Carignan made our list because it is a unique grape (ever purchase a bottle?) and it is luscious, thanks to the infusion of 25% cinsault, another cult varietal.
Don’t be surprised if you see Andrew’s wines popping up in the shop from time-to-time. Right now we have his 2013 Fiction Red Wine in 500 ml cans. . .that’s right. . .CANS!
Winery Tasting Notes: “Freshly cut roses and a touch of cinnamon on the nose. Reminds me of Mother’s Day. Strawberry candies, black licorice and grilled portabellas on the palate. Silk-smooth finish. Pour yourself another glass.”
Blend: 75% carignan; 25% cinsault
