It is said within the industry that Carignane is the wine that winemakers reach for when they just want something to drink, partly because the grape naturally retains a good deal of acid even when fully ripe. Our bottling from ancient Carignane vines, planted in their 1920  is red-fruit-focused, especially on tart plums and sour cherries that morph into meat seasoned with white pepper and a touch of leather. Though you can see your fingers through a full glass, the wine is weighty and dry, and clean on the palate. A simple roast beef French dip au jus sandwich or a hearty beef and barely stew would provide a satisfying accompaniment.
