ABOUT US:

With Princess and the Peasant Wines, we aim to celebrate the diversity of the Mendocino County viticultural landscape and winemaking heritage. The 2015 Poor Ranch Carignan is sourced from 74 year old dry farmed vines, and is a unique expression of a variety perfectly adapted to its terroir. Care is taken in the cellar to avoid the edgy tannins and gritty texture that can sometimes give Carignan a bad name. The result is a wine of polish and grace; driven by vivid red fruit, a succulent mouthfeel, and brisk acidity.

Curious? [scratch.gif] Read more about Princess and the Peasant here.

Thank you to Drew Goin, Corey N, Michael Martin, and everybody else who took the time to post here, and also those of you on Delectable [drinks.gif]

Thank you all for your time and to the team at Wine Berserkers for making this possible. Cheers! Dan [cheers.gif] and Stephanie [flirtysmile.gif]

The Carignane from last year's BerserkerDay is one of my favorite 'new discoveries' - loved those bottles, awesome juice.
Apparently I'm lazy, have a narrow agenda, and offer little in the way of content and substance (RMP) (and have a "penchant for gossip" -KBI)

Order in. We're big fans of the carignan, especially after a few months' of sideways time. Unfortunately, they go too fast, so we're very happy to be able to load up on the new vintage.

Thank you to Berserker Corey N (>25,000 posts) for the nice words: "this was an unknown producer to me, so I didn't order enough. Had I been able to taste ahead of time, this would have been an EASY case purchase."

Now is YOUR chance, Berserkers!

Thanks, Bill! I love your Riesling!

I tried making Riesling for a few years, from one of the top RZ vineyards in Northern CA - Greenwood Ridge. I adore the grape and am smitten with its ability to make a broader array of world class styles, from more diverse sources, than any other grape variety. This was my undoing - it's the only time I've gone into a project with the conception of what I wanted my wine to taste like, rather than reacting to the fruit in front of me and letting the vintage drive the decision making. I was making wine to a style that didn't fit the fruit - I wanted Mosel Riesling. It didn't work.

That's what so impresses me about folks like you - your Riesling is unique. It wouldn't taste the same if any body else make it, from any grapes elsewhere in the world.

After a flurry of requests from readers of the Signal Ridge offer, I'm extending the free upgrade 6-pack to case, with penny shipping, to the first that can answer this trivia question:

*** Signal Ridge is not only a Vineyard, it's a remote ridge accessed by dirt road, 45 minutes from the town of Philo. Who is our most notorious former resident, who spent a bit of time here in 1968? He died in Bakersfield, in 2017. He'd been in Bakersfield for a long time. Hint: could he have moved on after a few months because he was irriTATEd? ***

We were thrilled to spend some time with Berserker Jorge Henriquez last year and get his impressions of the wine.

Cheers, Jorge! [berserker.gif]

A nice note on our 2015 Carignan from grapelive.com..."rich detail and ripe juiciness" were the goal in making the '17 as well.

I can't think of a wine that satisfies such a broad range of tastes and at a ridiculous price, to boot!

Thanks for running it long as I needed the extra time! Picked up my third annual case of the Carignan. Great wine and a great value, we've shared it with lots of folks and it always gets a positive reception. Thanks for participating!

Thanks to all of you who took the time to give us a chance today! We've got about 10 of the Signal Ridge 6-packs left, as presently constituted, I'll see if we can throw together an alternate if we sell out.

Cheers, all!
