Tasting Notes

Vibrant red-ruby in color. Bountiful fragrance of boysenberry, plum, and black current intertwined with spice, leather, and earth. This medium-to-full bodied is action packed with flavors of blackberry compote, cocoa, and hints of caramelized dried fig.

Winemaker Notes

Why Lunacy & Nonsense? Taking a risk as I often do, and planting a variety like Tempranillo on our estate with no examples to follow seems precarious. How well would it grow? How is the wine going to turn out? Will the product sell? As a farmer we face risk daily so to add another level of anxiety by your own doing doesn’t make sense and to some, it’s pretty crazy. The risk paid off and Lunacy & Nonsense was born. - David Mounts
