La Clarine Farm 'Sumu Kaw Syrah' 2016
is back-ordered. We will ship it separately in 10 to 15 days.
La Clarine Farm really IS one of the most significant, influential projects in the US, churning out inexplicable wines with a cartoony individuality that we just can't get out of our heads. Hank Beckmeyer’s approach is unapologetically minimalist in the extreme and the wines burst at the seams with raw life force. The La Clarine approach is exploratory without pretense, energetic and raw without self importance. Rarified in the advent of the natural wine market takeover... This is one of the most central of Hank’s wines, high altitude Syrah twining roots through volcanic loam. While this has always been a fav for us, this vintage is outstanding with an amplified structural element begs the question: what’s this sucker like with age?
