From the winemaker

“Carignan and comfort food just naturally belong together. It starts with the rich ruby color, giving a noticeable hint of what’s to follow. Pleasant, welcoming aromas of red and black fruits such as blackberry and cherry pair with distinct notes of fig and licorice, topped off with cinnamon and black pepper. It’s no surprise that the flavors follow spot on, with a bit more allspice and cassis. Finely grained tannins give the wine a silky, supple and ultimately smooth, lingering finish. This is a wine meant for rich pastas, stews and grilled meats. On my cheese plate you’ll find shades of blue, as well as dry, aged hard cheeses like Comte, Grana Pandano or Manchego. This old vine Carignan is truly unique.”
