Tasting Notes: A wine of harmony, delicate balance, and velvety tannins, this Carignan fleshes out to reveal white flowers, dried sage, and wet stone. The wine has beautiful lift, delicious juiciness, and plush dark berry flavors, with a mouthwatering finish. The minerality and ocean-like salinity are qualities that we love in the Carignan from this vineyard.
Winemaking: Native yeast. 28% carbonic maceration. Of the remainder, 20% whole cluster in small, open-top fermenters. Aged for 11 months in neutral French oak barrels. Unfined and unfiltered.
