"We've been crushing on Lambrusco for long enough, so we thought we'd make our version of it. Petit Verdot provides a great skeleton to build off of. It's super inky and weighty and rich. Merlot lends more dense fruit and a perception of sweeness, like many Lambruscos carry. We blended a small amount of Picpoul in for acidity. Yellow apple, banana bread, sea breeze, limestone. Pét-nat, but make it réd."
