The Old Vines Field Blend incorporates grapes from ancient-vine plantings of Carignane, Zinfandel, Petite Sirah, Mataro (Mouvèdre), Alicante Bouschet, and Black Malvoisie. These vines are over 100 years old and produce concentrated grapes, which influence the color, nose, and palate of the wine. In the glass, the wine is a dark purple color, with a jet-black center. Aromas of wild blueberries, ripe blackberries, sweet spices, and herbes de Provence characterize the nose. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, with flavors of blackberries, cassis, and crushed violets.
