Description

This is a little fine wine with a twist, our first half bottle of red wine in a can! Broc Cellars ‘Love Red’ is an innovative red wine which changes depending on the vintage and is more concerned with ensuring the delicious, fresh, juicy style each year than sticking to the exact blend of grapes as a matter of routine! Each year the blend is therefore quite different: this 2019 is a blend of 72% Carignan, 20% Valdiguie and 8% Syrah. 

Broc Cellars was founded by Chris Brockway in 2006. Originally from Nebraska, Chris moved to California and having gained an oenology degree, made his first wine in 2002. At the time the overriding trend in Californian wine was that bigger was better (more alcohol, oak and flavour). Broc took an alternative approach and inspired by local produce and a natural winemaking philosophy looked to produce lighter, fresher and more affordable wines. The grapes are harvested early to preserve the primary fruit character and natural acidity that carries through to the wine.

Broc describe this wine as being their most identifiable, achieving their goal of representing what used to be considered traditional Californian winemaking. The Carignan brings fruit character including blueberries and red fruits, the Valdiguie adds brightness and acidity to the wine and the Syrah brings depth and structure. We enjoyed this slightly chilled and would recommend decanting to a glass to enjoy it, though tasting from the can is intriguing! Drink now till summer 2022. 12.5% ABV.
