Mendocino County. This is a blend of old vine zinfandel and carignane from the village of Talmage, just outside of Ukiah. Dry farmed, 1948 planted. Aromas of soft red fruits with a hit of soft blackberry and a light spice and a hit of sweet tart raspberry. Medum body with medium acid, the palate has a light spice with fruits and a tart cherry. D&M Tasting Notes

Winemaker: Randy Czech and Erin Mitchell
The Stowaway (named after a lizard that stole a lift in their grape transport truck) technically a ‘table wine’ because the alcohol, at 11.8% ABV, is actually too low It is under the 12% minimum required by the TTB for a varietal or AVA label.
