Field Blends are the result of a certain way of propagating vineyards in early 20th century California Viticulture wherein various vines were planted in a vineyard and the underperformers had their heads lopped off to be replaced by budwood from the best performers. Trial and Error or Darwinianism at its best if you will. Lot 321 is a fanciful interpretation of this technique but the result is anything but.
Lot 321, combines Zinfandel, Petite Sirah, Syrah and Carignane, is an exercise in gorgeously fruited, yet well structured wine that is a good reflection of the dirt from which it hails. This wine is the best of the old-world and the new, the classic and the updated…Purity of essence if you will. A phenomenal buy.
Blend of the Year
This is the value blend of the year. Big bold and wonderful. So jammy and what a finish.
A Very Interesting Blend
Opens up nicely and showcases the art in blending quality juice.
A best blend
I tend to like Cam's blends, but this one is a favorite. This has been our daily "go to" wine. A little jammy with a very nice finish. Goes with about anything.
Love this blend. The addition of petite syrah and carignane really make this a special blend.
