2019 NITHYA

Nithya is a Sanskrit word that means ‘eternal’. This wine is a blend of equal parts Cabernet Franc and Malbec, also called Côt, sourced from the Massa Vineyard in Carmel Valley. Massa is a certified organic farm and a very unique place. The vineyard seems like it has been there forever. There is an Alpine feel to it, and yet, you are firmly in sunny California. The Carmel Valley’s limestone soils imbue the wine with an energy I find really intriguing.

The Cabernet Franc and Côt were harvested on the same day and co-fermented. The wine was raised in neutral barrel and bottled without filtration or the addition of sulfur. There is a very energetic, coniferous green note that hums along, just below the surface of the aromatics, but the wine is incredibly generous with flavors of black cherry and plum.

NOTE: This wine is as pure as mountain fruit gets and it’s going to be drinking really, really well when it’s young. In fact, I am releasing this wine BEFORE the 2018 Nithya, a 100% Cabernet Franc wine from the Enz Vineyard made in the weightier and more serious style of Right Bank Bordeaux.
