About the Wine: 

"The Inky Tonic is made from a plot of Petite Sirah planted in 1969 by the Poor family at their ranch near Hopland in Mendocino County. The Poors began homesteading in the 1880's and are fifth generation organic farmers. The Inky Tonic is a mouthful of huckleberry, white pepper and black fruit with notes of baker’s chocolate and fresh herbs in the nose. It shouts proudly “I am California, here me roar!” and has a juicy mid-palate, a voluptuous texture, mouth-watering acidity and a sexy little bite of tannin." 

From the Winery: 

"Founded in 2010 by Erin Mitchell and Randy Czech, we are a wine production company dedicated to making delicious, natural wine in California. We are firm believers in the idea of non-interventionist winemaking and use intuition, pragmatism and a dash of whimsy to bring our wine to your table. 

We source only organically farmed grapes from Sonoma and Mendocino Counties and bend our own backs in the effort of growing good wine. We honor Mother Nature’s intentions and the work of the farmers that go together to make each of the vineyards we buy fruit from unique, and bottle all of our wines as vineyard designates. 

All our ferments occur naturally, and we rely on taste and experience rather than lab numbers to guide our winemaking. We do no additions or subtractions in the winery other than minimal sulfur as needed. We believe good wine is grown rather than made and see ourselves simply as custodians to the process. Our goal is to make wines that are fun to drink and express the laidback attitude of the North Coast." 

ABV: 12.50% 

Organically grown, unfined, unfiltered, low sulphur and vegan-friendly.
