Tracey and Jared Brandt risked it all to get into the wine business. Leaving their careers in the tech industry, they travelled from America to France to be tutored by some of the best practitioners of natural winemaking. It was there they encountered organic and biodynamic farming and were exposed to balanced and transparent expressions of such wines. Greatly inspired by one particular genius, they convinced Eric Texier to let them do a stint at his winery working on all aspects of production from vineyard to cellar. After toiling through the challenges of the rainy 2002 vintage in the Rhône, they returned to California in 2003, set up shop in a friend’s garage, and produced five barrels of wine from the 2003 vintage. This wonderful Carignane from a Mendocino vineyard planted in 1939 is wild fermented, unfined, and unfiltered – essentially made as the Romans would. Dense and inky, with chewy, briary fruit, foursquare tannins, and long mineral-laced finish, it’s an arresting wine that will hold your attention through a hearty braised dinner.
