This wine pours the color of darkest night, deep dark colored hues! Heady aromas of blueberry pie, suede leather, smoked meats with a touch or crème de menthe and a delicious roquefort tart. Firm tannins anchor flavors of grilled meats, cherry cola, sweet carob and black licorice chews, all cased up together conveniently in a cigar humidifier. Drink now. You know you're going to, anyway.
Field Recordings is winemaker Andrew Jones’ personal catalog of the people and places he values most. Their wines are all about the flavor — with none of the pretension. Andrew has a keen eye for diamonds in the rough: sites that are unknown or under-appreciated but hold enormous untapped potential. He strives for unique wines loaded with personality and a one-of-a-kind experience.
Spending his days as a vine nursery fieldman planning and planting vineyards for farmers all over California, Andrew is sometimes offered small lots of their best fruit on the side. Having stood in just about every vineyard on the Central Coast, he’s all about finding those underdogs with untapped potential. As friendships are made and opportunities are embraced, Andrew produces small quantities of soulful wine from these unusual, quiet vineyards.
