A hot, dry summer provided ideal conditions for these old carignane vines. All five blocks were harvested the first two weeks of September. Following malolactic, we tasted and selected the Front, Top, and House blocks for their richness and firm acidity. This outstanding carignane is layered with dark fruit, mineral, and spice. Enjoyable now, it will continue to develop over the next five years.
