Product Description

The Wine: Solid + Sensible 2018

Subject to Change Solid + Sensible is a red natural wine made from a field blend of 25% Syrah, 25% Roussanne, 20% Zinfandel, 20% Marsanne, and 10% Viognier farmed at Poor Ranch (for the reds) and Bonofiglio for the whites – both vineyards are CCOF certified. Juicy glou glou California wine to be served chilled.

Winemaker notes: This cuvée is a mashup of three separate lots. The first is a coferment of whole cluster Syrah, Marsanne, and Viognier (both destemmed) that was left on the skins for 3 weeks. The second is a blend of Syrah and Zin - the Syrah went carbonic for a month and the whole clusters of Zin were left on the skins for 2 ½ weeks. The third is a blend of Viognier, Marsanne, and Roussanne - the Viognier went carbonic for 2 weeks before being pressed together with the later-ripening Marsanne and Roussanne. After 7 months elevage in neutral barrels and numerous blending trials, we decided that the respective lots tasted better together than separately, so we made the solid and sensible decision to put it all into one crushable red. We racked everything into a stainless tank for 2 months before we bottled the blend unfined, unfiltered, and with no SO2. Chill down for best results.

The Producer: Subject to Change

Subject to Change is a labor of love. We have a small but growing team based out of Oakland, CA. We make site-specific wines exclusively from organic and biodynamic vineyards. The wines are made with no additions or subtractions in the winery. We make wines with strong character, just like the people with whom we like to enjoy them.

Subject to Change Wine Co. exists as a canvas for exploration of terroir and natural wine in Northern California. STC was founded on a true love for drinking wine, and the many people and experiences that come as a result. In a place where wine production has recently been marked by rules and rigor, there’s a new movement of free thinking producers. We’re proud to be part of a revolution defined by experimentation - where we don’t need to conform to a certain archetype and wine can feel exciting again.

We source fruit exclusively from organic or biodynamic growers with whom we have a symbiotic working relationship. Mostly, we focus on making wines that we like to drink, which can be on a spectrum from fun and whimsical to serious and intellectual (we like to think those things are not mutually exclusive depending on context). The wines are fresh and often offbeat, just how we like it. (source: Subject to Change)

Shipping & Returns

Stress Free Shipping

At Primal Wine we like to be transparent about everything we do. When it comes to buying products online, shipping is the most important aspect, and that’s why we take great care in shipping and handling your order using only 100% recycled packaging material.

Re-shipping

If a package gets returned to us after three failed delivery attempts, we can only re-ship the wine upon payment of a re-shipping fee. Shipping wine is extremely expensive, we are sorry about this, but we have no other choice. Please make sure there's always someone at the address you enter as your shipping address.

Important Compliance Requirements

UPS and other carriers we might occasionally use can only deliver wine to customers who are 21 years or older.

Important COVID Update

UPS and FedEx declared that in order to protect their workers and customers, they no longer require a signature on delivery. This does not mean they will drop a wine box at your door. UPS delivery workers will make sure the person receiving the wine is 21 years or older, and will ask for his/her name - only then do they deliver the package.

Shipping Rates and Options

An important premise: wine bottles are heavy – about 3 pounds each – and shipping is expensive! Primal Wine is not backed by venture capital money – we proudly are a mom and pop independent online store – and we must charge shipping on all orders, otherwise we wouldn’t be in business. However, we try our best to offer you very competitive shipping rates.

Return Policy

If you are not satisfied with your purchase, please contact us at (424) 414-2040 or via e-mail at hello@primalwine.com between 9 am and 5 pm Pacific Standard Time, Monday through Sunday, we would like to understand and try to solve your concerns.

We may make arrangements for a return and refund if appropriate, and only after we receive unopened products back to our warehouse.
