2019 Carhartt Venture™ Sin Nada


Portico Hills Vineyard, Santa Barbara County – 13.4% abv

Composition: 100% Grenache 

Nose (aromas): dusty, tart cherry, green peppercorn

Flavor (palate): hibiscus, sweet tobacco, cedar

Winemaker’s Notes: Because of this wine’s interesting blend of fruit and spice, I prefer to drink it slightly chilled. It goes well with spicy or lighter-bodied foods, but could easily be consumed on its own, no accompaniment necessary.       

Ageing Potential: Now – 2023 ***Because this wine has no SO2 additions, I would recommend drinking it within a 1-3 year time window. No bottle ageing needed!  

Additional Notes: The name of this wine really says it all, “without nothing.” It is a true “natural wine.” It was fermented whole cluster and with native yeasts, punched down by hand until dry, pressed by hand, aged in neutral oak for 6 months, and bottled by hand using gravity flow. No machinery whatsoever, no additions, no sulfur. Sin nada.    

The 2019 Sin Nada is my favorite vintage of the three. An impressive natural wine, this style pushes the boundaries of pretty much most Grenache I have had in my life. Slightly hazy, and flavorful yet soft on the palate, this wine will crush it at your summertime pool party or be a clear stand-out in a blind tasting. – Chase Carhartt
