Smaken är generöst fruktig, fyllig och mjuk med lätt vaniljton och inslag av mörk choklad, jordgubbar och björnbär. En given succé till smakrik mat som exempelvis lamm eller nötkött — 13 hours ago
15% abv. Fresh juicy Zin. Not so jammy like traditional ones I enjoyed it with charcuterie board. — 5 days ago

@Delectable Wine oddly enough this is a Blanc de Cinsault, one of the silver linings of 2020.
When the fires hit early in harvest 2020, Will and Karen hedged their bets by pressing some of the 100+ year old vine Cinsault from the legendary Bechtold Vineyard immediately, and the result is a joy: pear, pomello, white grapefruit, some pith and white pepper on the finish. Fragrant and light.
In good news, the regular Cinsault from the vintage also turned out beautifully and isn’t showing a trace of smoke taint—or at least when I tried it a few months back. — 19 days ago
Dark purple. Chocolate and cassis. I just googled and learned that hieroglyph and hierogram have different meaning. Learning from wine labels! 😊 — 15 days ago
Popped and poured, the 2020 Cinsault pours a bright ruby with a transparent core; slight staining of the tears. Medium viscosity. Redolent of red and purple flowers, strawberry, orange, coffee, dried herbs, spices. It’s dry with medium tannin and medium+ acid. The finish is savory. Fresh. Juicy. Awesome. This is what Sandlands is all about. — 20 days ago
