BACA Is Gutsy, Intense & Inspired. When created BACA had one mission in mind: to make luxury, craft Zinfandels that are nuanced, honest, and current. Wine for people like them: the curious, the adventuresome, the lovers of life, with a gleam in their eye and a penchant for the uncharted.

BACA is Latin for berry, so that’s where we started and that is our goal to perfect their wines. Bounding headlong into some of California’s most noted growing regions—Calistoga, Russian River, Rockpile, Howell Mountain, and Paso Robles—we sourced the most intriguing fruit for our wines. Grapes from gorgeously old vines and historic areas, which we transformed using masterful winemaking techniques into wines that reflect the unique places in which they’re grown.

Tasting Notes:
The 2018 BACA Somersault is everything we love about Old Vine Zinfandel. It is powerful, yet elegant. The wine leads with delicate, floral aromas of white pepper and rose hips. Pure, vibrant fruit flavors of blackberry and raspberry coulis follow. The finish is energetic with the signature minerality of these 100-year old vines. Fresh, round and polished, this is
a serious wine with structure. It is luxurious now and will age beautifully.

"Gorgeous fruit flavors practically ooze from the glass in this very ripe, very tasty and full-bodied wine. Blackberry jam, strawberries and black plums flood the palate while soft tannins give a velvety texture." Jim Gordon
