Cuvée Zero Zero (Superbloom)

The idea was to co-ferment red & white Rhône varieties from a single vineyard, then keep it completely natural. It’s a complex, utterly unique wine that expresses the specialness of Love Ranch Vineyard in the Sierra Foothills. Red grapes impart a spicy nose with plenty of texture, while white grapes add notes of watermelon & rhubarb with a clean, mineral finish.
