Tegan Passalacqua is the Director of Winemaking for Turley Cellars. Sandlands is his passion project with his wife Olivia. Very small production, we were only able to get our hands on 12 bottles!
This wine is from a vineyard in Contra Costa county planted in the 1920s. It has hints of orange zest, dried cranberry, purple plum, dried fennel and star anise. It’s medium-bodied with wonderful structure and long, suave tannins.
Sustainable farming practices, only 5 barrels produced.
*Carignane is a medium-bodied red, perfect for those who like the flavor of Cabernet Sauvignon but not necessarily the bold tannins that come with it. It’s very food-friendly, great with manchego cheese, Sausage Paella or anything off the BBQ.
