2019 Bechthold Vineyard Cinsaut

By Marchelle Wines

Cinsaut Red Wine made from 120+ year old vines in Lodi
Smoked meats, roasted venison and a musky ethereal sensual aroma leap out of the glass to grab one’s attention. On the palate, you get raspberries and currants with tannins that are silky-smooth and a gentle and savory-spice finish. Awarded a Gold Medal and 92 points at the 2021 American Fine Wine Competition.

Meet the Winemaker

Greg La Follette

Partner & Winemaker

Known throughout the wine world as a “vine whisperer,” “cellar magician,” and tireless coaxer and protector of his handcrafted wines. A former seminarian and biochemist with degrees in Plant Biology and Chemistry, he was an early AIDS researcher at the University of California San Francisco before earning his masters degree in Food Science and Technology at the University of California Davis. It was at Davis that Greg became fascinated with “mouth feel” and literally tore wines apart, determined to decode the chemical riddles of taste and texture, especially in Burgundian styles of Pinot noir and chardonnay.
