Joel and Eric on this wine: “We call this a “California Table Wine,” but don’t be fooled by the humble name. Superbloom is a complex, utterly unique wine that expresses the specialness of Love Ranch vineyard in the Sierra Foothills through a co-ferment of red and white Rhône varieties. (Usually about half to two-thirds of the latter.) It is named after the wildflowers that erupt in the desert after a wetter-than-normal rainy season. They’re a sign that winter is over and warmer, happier days are ahead. Even when spring has not yet sprung in a lot of the country, you can sip on Superbloom and dream of warm California nights.”

“In the spring of 2022, Love Ranch got hot with a bad frost, so we took the opportunity to find some new cool grapes for Superbloom! Our approach is to use organic grapes from warm areas on rocky or gravelly free-draining soils. We also added a touch of early-picked Viognier to give some acidity to the blend. We think this is our freshest-tasting Superbloom yet!”

Winemaking: a carbonic co-ferment wine made in several tanks, each of which with a different varietal mix. Cold carbonic macerations from 10-14 days long. After pressing, each lot fermented separately in stainless steel. They were combined once they were dry. Primary and malo-lactic fermentation were native. There have been no additions to this wine, no fining, no filter.

Personality: “Is it dark pink? Or light red? Call it a nighttime rosé, if you’d like. You know that moment right after sunset, before the stars are out in full—what poets call the “violet hour”? That’s the moment to open this wine. The red grapes give this wine a spicy nose and plenty of texture, while the white grapes add beautiful watermelon and rhubarb notes, plus a clean, mineral finish.”
