Martha Stoumen Post Flirtation Red 2018 12.3% (750ml)
Wild fruit - Hibiscus - Spice
Wild fruit notes; juicy aromatics from the Zinfandel with just enough structure from the Carignan. A very versatile wine that is abundantly playful, but serious in all the right ways...
Martha Stoumen says: "This wine is so joyous, and to me, distinctly Californian. I never knew how much I loved Zinfandel until I started working as Chris Brockway’s (Broc Cellars) assistant winemaker. When picked before the grape berries begin to shrivel, you get these amazing hibiscus, rhubarb, pomegranate, and baking spices from Zin. Like an avocado, the window is small between unripe and overripe, and I watch the Zin closely. Carignan, Zinfandel’s less celebrated companion, provides a savory component reminiscent of driving through California chaparral, and, like Ricetti’s, can be incredibly complex with 70 years of vine age. I’m not re-inventing the wheel with this classic old vine Zin/Carignan blend, just lightening things up a bit."
Grape: Zinfandel, Carignan
