Brij Nithya Red Blend 2022

This red blend from Raj Parr is inspired by the wines of Touraine in the cool-climate Loire Valley. The Malbec and Cabernet France — a 50/50 split — is sourced from the Massa Vineyard in Carmel Valley.

Fermented separately, whole cluster, then blended immediately after pressing, the wine spends 8 months aging in neutral oak before bottling. The result is a crunchy red that reminds us of some of our favorite natural Loire Valley Cab Francs. You'll get notes of red fruit, graphite and bell pepper, blueberry, leather, and currant. Very fresh with fine tannins — an excellent wine for lovers of the Loire Valley.
