2017 HAZARD Dry Farmed Mendocino Carignan
28.00

This wine is a fresh, light-bodied and true expression of the Carignan varietal. The wine shows first with bright red cherries and plums extending with light balsamic, fig and spice through the mid-palate that expresses more with air contact. All neutral oak aging was used to allow an unadulterated experience with this often-overlooked grape, deserving a stage of her own. The Poor Ranch is certified organic (CCOF) and has been completely dry farmed since being first planted in the 1880s.

Carignan (Care-ing-yan) is originally a Spanish grape that migrated to Southern France and eventually made its way to America. In the 1800s Carignan was the most widely planted grape in the state of California. It is typically used as a blending grape in many red wines across the world for its wonderful acidity and red fruit characteristics, but works wonderfully as a stand-alone grape. The owners of this ranch want to pull out these beautiful nearly 100-year old vines because most people buy wines made from mainstream grapes like Cabernet, Merlot, Chardonnay and Pinot Grigio. Help us save these beautiful relics of American History and expose yourself to a wonderful new grape to cherish as much as our storied past. Cheers!

Our Mission

Continuing the long tradition of California hand-crafted, small-lot winemaking, Preamble is a wine company first, and with each passing vintage seeks to create the best representation of our vineyards and character. We begin with grapes grown on the North Eastern foothills of Wooden Valley, a few mountain peaks to the South East of Napa Valley, and work our way towards soft, fruit-forward and food-friendly wines. We believe in good foundations, both in bottle and in mind. It is our hope to spark a renaissance of true American character in each respect.

And it is, indeed, this hope that sets Preamble apart from our fellows. Beneath our commitment to hand-crafting delicious wine springs an effort to revitalize the American Spirit of Independence. This is a spirit of respect for the opinion of others, no matter what, and the desire to sway those of differing thoughts with calm reason and peaceful coercion. Everyone has a right to believe what they think, but they should be pushed to respectfully defend those thoughts with compelling evidence. We believe in the power of honest conversation and a balanced glass of wine.

The American commitment to safeguarding the eternal truths proved in the natural world and most properly matriculated into human society through our Declaration of Independence and Constitution is the sacred bond we all share. It is an undertaking of the highest importance and requires a citizenship willing to talk, discern and defend.

It is my hope that the merging of American idealism with such an enduring social catalyst as wine will stimulate the exchange of ideas that is necessary for our survival, once so habitual in the average American spirit. And, it is our belief that Preamble will act as an able courier, returning this revolutionary disposition to a straying American public.

Please join us in drinking well and returning a humbled sense of responsibility to our citizenship.

"Educate and inform the whole mass of the people, they are the only sure reliance of the preservation of liberty." 

- Thomas Jefferson
