"Experimentation is what makes life and winemaking fun. We are constantly pushing ourselves, trying new things, testing new styles. KC Labs is all about the constant adventure that is life, and the trials and errors along the way. Let's try an experiment together, eh?" -Jordan Kivelstadt, Wayward Son

Eco Terreno is the largest biodynamically farmed contiguous vineyard in Alexander Valley. The vineyard incorporates cover crops, bee gardens, husbandry and limited water usage. Larry Venturi is a 3rd generation farmer tending to vines planted on his family's historic site in Calpella (Ukiah), in Mendocino County. The Zinfandel vines were planted in 1955 and are head trained, dry farmed, the whole shebang. The vineyard is farmed Certified Organic.

Varietal: 100% Zinfandel

This wine was made using Carbonic fermentation, like the wines of Beaujolais. 100% of grapes were left whole cluster, blanketed with CO2 and held at cool temperatures for 8 days (70F). Afterwards, the wine was pressed to barrel to finish primary fermentation. It is aged in neutral barrels for 6 months where it finishes malolactic fermentation.

It walks the line between having low tannin and mouth-watering acid of rosé, but the darker flavor profile and color of a red. Bright cranberry, raspberry with a little bit of bubble gum and candy.
