Today we’ve got a pretty amazing old-vine and dry-farmed blend of 39% Carignane from the 80 year-old vines of the Hawkeye Ranch in Redwood Valley plus 21% Carignane from the 120+ year-old vines of the Casa Roja Vineyard in Contra Costa (planted in the late 1800’s!) In addition there is 20% Syrah from the Ledgewood Vineyard in Suisun Valley and 20% Zinfandel from the 65 year-old vines of the Knox Vineyard in Redwood Valley.
All in all, only 29 barrels of this old-vine beauty were produced. It was aged in 12% once-used oak and 88% neutral French oak for 10 months.
This is a truly excellent, small production wine with a quality level light years beyond anything you’ll find at the supermarket for this price.
This wine already has a pretty reasonable SRP at $26. Today’s deal; however, gets you 3 bottles for just $49.99 or $16.66 per bottle. That’s a savings of almost $10 a bottle!

From the winery:
This wine fills the glass with aromas of dark fruit, pencil shavings, grilled bread and hints of freshly ground white pepper, which are complemented by flavors of black plums, preserves and cranberry.
This wine has loads of fruit, mellow tannins and complex aromatics, it is a go-to red, she is super fun and refreshingly reliable.
All three of the vineyard sites where the grapes of this blend are grown have a large diurnal temperature shift. This is a key element that allows the fruit to be balanced and beaming with flavor at lower sugars, allowing me to harvest earlier and retain the lovely natural acidity, vibrant red fruits and floral notes.
The aroma on the 2016 Farmstrong Field Red is a bit shy at first but very nice with a little time in the glass featuring ripe dark fruit, leather, a little pepper and a little wet stone.
This is definitely not a big over the top wine but is more subtle in its excellent flavors and complexity. This easy drinking, medium bodied blend features a smooth, round, almost comforting mouthfeel with good fruit and hints of spice and white pepper. Really easy going in just about every aspect, this is a wine to sip slowly, savor and appreciate. It ends dry with good length and is maybe even slightly better on day 2 although you'll probably have difficulty not drinking it all on day 1!
