Old vine Carignan has a deep, red color and lovely aromas of wild herbs and red berries. On the plate it is rich and full bodied with hints of spice and leather.
Although this wine is made with a traditional grape variety, the vinification was done in a modern style. The grapes are destemmed and crushed. The fermentation is carried out at controlled temperatures, around 75°F and the wine is aged in French oak to add complexity and roundness to the blend resulting in a juicy, intense and full-flavored wine.
Excellent with beef, barbeque or firm cheeses.
