Carignan, 2009 $75

100% Old Vine Carignan from Mendocino County

Brilliant ruby-red. Smoky, expansive scents of dried cherry, incense, Indian spices and licorice candy, with a suggestion of vanilla building in the glass. Sweet, seamless, deeply pitched dark fruit flavors are sharpened by a peppery nuance, picking up a floral note on the back half. Closes sweet, smoky and spicy, with excellent persistence and subtle tannins. This wild, distinctive wine was made with 50% whole clusters and aged in new Hungarian oak for 4 years. 93 pts  Josh Raynolds, Vinous Sept 2015
