A Ruth Lewandowski - "Feints" California Red 2023 (750ml)


| /


Forget what you think you know about Californian wine. Or maybe even about wine in general. This is pioneering, boundary-pushing stuff and it's the inimitable Evan Lewandowski sailing the ship - alongside a crack team. Sourcing high-quality grapes from a number of vineyards in California, the range of wines is eclectic, but each wine has its own character, and a bit of a cult following. Here we have a co-fermentation of red and white Piedmontese varieties from the Fox Hill Vineyard, which is close to the Russian River. Arneis, Dolcetto, Barbera and Nebbiolo, entwined in a carbonic maceration, which spits out this peppy, spicy, juicy, fresh wine that is so drinkable. This particular vintage has a small proportion of fruit from other vineyards, as the 2021 yield was particularly low. Easy breezy cranberry juice and apple skin freshness. Part of "Best summer red wines to drink chilled". - Decanter

Working at once with all of the Piedmontese varieties found at Fox Hill, Feints is quite an unexpected wine. It's a co-fermentation of Dolcetto, Barbera, Nebbiolo and Arneis...yes, three reds and a white (and nearly 50% white each year)! Full carbonic maceration keeps things poppy, light on its feet and fresh. For all intents and purposes this is the complex light red wine go-to and truly couldn't be more gluggable. - winery
