Winestyr Review

We tasted this wine as a staff when samples were sent out and it took approximately five seconds to decide we had to have this on the platform. The wine is packed to the lid with flavor, savory dried herbs and black tea with luscious blue and blackberries. This field blend was planted in the early 1960's and sees 20 months in neutral barrel.

What We Love

  • Very old vines
  • Acclaimed winemaking
  • Classic California field blend

Vinca Minor is back with another show stopping wine.

Experience

Vinca Minor makes small amounts of wine from organic vineyards in Mendocino and the Santa Cruz Mountains. Owner/winemaker Jason Edward Charles got his start in winemaking after spending his post-collegiate years as photographer which exposed him to everything from street life in Mexico City to the gorgeous Spanish countryside. He then immersed himself in studying the art of winemaking and spent time honing his skills at Chateau Haut Goujon in Lalande de Pomerol in France, as well as at some of Napa Valley's best producers. Jason is a rising star in the winemaking world and his small lot, natural wines are absolutely stunning.
