The 2012 "Fiction" is a blend of 40% Zinfandel, 13% Tempranillo, 12% Petite Sirah, 11% Touriga Nacional, 10% Mourvedre, 8% Grenache, and 6% Cinsault that was aged in a combination of parital new French and American oak. It is a fruity yet complex wine with spicy accents and great depth of flavor. It's generous and approachable, with fresh acidity for food-pairing ease. "Field Recordings is 33-year old winemaker Andrew Jones' personal catalog of the people and places he values most. 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 has a keen eye for diamonds in the rough: sites that are unknown or under-appreciated but hold enormous untapped potential. As friendships are made and opportunities are embraced, Andrew produces small quantities of soulful wine from these unusual, quiet vineyards." (from the winery)
