An excellent, robust red wine made from Carignan. From older vines, you'll find dense extract, a good dose of tannins and dark fruit aromas. Jason Charles spent time after College working as a photographer in the US, Mexico, and Europe. He caught the wine bug waiting tables in New York City restaurants. After experiences working in vineyards in Saint Emilion in Bordeaux and the Sonoma Coast, Jason started the Vinca Minor label to “explore the intersection between farmer, winemaker and artist.” Jason makes his wines with as little intervention as possible.
