Absentee - 2019 - Western Art (MAGNUM)

Arborieu, Petite Sirah

Point Reyes, California, USA

Avi Deixler began making completely natural, perfectly delicious wine in 2016, in Point Reyes, California and has garnered much fervent praise ever since. Things are changing a bit, Avi's got big plans for the next chapter of Absentee (including white wines!) in a new facility, in Mendocino. Avi does his own cooperage and ferments in barrels. Grapes are farmed organically and treated only with elemental sulphur, nothing else. Head pruned, dry-farmed, many old vines. We’re so excited to be working with this up and coming producer. He represents, for us, the best of what California wine can and should be. Fruit purchased from the Poor Ranch in Hopland, Mendocino. (Steven Graf)
