Red Blend - 2021

Bush and trellised vines dot the Coastal Region, blending Rhône varietals after natural fermentations and aging in oak foudres. Lubanzi is carbon-neutral, Fair Trade, and a Certified B Corporation. Like all Lubanzi wines, 50% of the annual profits are shared with the growers via the Pebbles Project. An old-school Rhône blend with a contemporary style, this wine has a dark ruby color. On the palate, it offers flavors of cherry, earth, and stone, with hints of smoke and spice on the nose.
