Birichino Cinsault Old Vines 2016

SKU 89917500206


2016 Bechthold Cinsault red is the epitome of Birichino style- condensed, focused, and complete, yet without leaning on weight and extraction. Cinsault is a surprisingly versatile variety, especially as the product of 130 year-old vines. As a component of our rosé, it radiates nothing but sunshine, tenderness and light. But here, as a red wine, it reveals added dimensions of rock, earth, and deep dark fruit.

Wine EnthusiastThis is a fresh, lively and refreshing bottling from old vines, which often offer deep complexity on a lighter frame. Aromas of rose petals, hibiscus, cranberry and wet cement lead into a palate full of crisp red currant, tangy strawberry, and a stunningly rocky minerality. Serve slightly chilled.
