Love Red is the everyday, anytime California red wine we love to make as a showcase of old heritage vines that produce amazing fruit. This year’s Love Red is more dynamic than in past vintages, with a subtle touch of tannin and pleasant structure to pair with food, while remaining light and fresh. The grapes were harvested early to highlight the fruit and preserve their natural acidity. The Carignan and Valdiguié were naturally fermented as a mix of partially destemmed and whole cluster berries and went through partial carbonic maceration in stainless steel tank. All aged in a mix of neutral French oak barrique and stainless steel.
Love Red keeps many old vines planted in California, having a home every year at Broc in this blend.
