Black cherry with tobacco leaf notes on the nose, palate of fig jam, refreshing acidity and hint of cocoa on the finish. JO (12/20)
Late spring rains delayed budbreak, however the vines ripened quickly in the summer heat. We picked all five blocks of the old vine carignane in early September. After a natural yeast fermentation, we chose the Back Block for its concentrated dark fruit and the Sidehill for its elegant acidity. Aging in well-tempered American oak for eleven months has integrated the fine-grained tannins. Enjoyable as a young wine, this exemplary carignane will evolve over another six years.
