Carignane Blend

Ridge Vineyards

Buchignani Ranch Carignane 2015

Is there such a thing as: fresh cut grass scented black cherry caramel popcorn? Mouth-watering fresh acid. The color is incredible. Far western edge of Alexander Valley, 13 acres of Carignane planted between 1927 and 1950. pure black cherry, fresh cut grass that reminds me only of Zinfandel. Caramel that I typically associate with Petit and Alicante but not after tasting this in barrel. Beautifully simple but not a Basic Bitch. I would Blind it as a field blend or Zin. Good stuff, put it in a decanter, curious to see what 72 hours does — 23 days ago

California Carignane 2015

Always enjoy the purply color of this grape. This is the earthiest example I've had, even after some decanting. Good balance of light tannins and acidity. Notes of baking spices, dried herbs and cranberries, along with black currant. Will check on day 2 to see if more fruit comes forward. — 19 days ago

Loving the 2015- almost a fizz on the tongue at first then evolving into a little fruit with a lot of funk! — 6 days ago

Niemi Vineyard Carignane 2013

I love this wine! Its light yet has body of a bigger wine. Aromas of strawberry, black cherry, dried fruit. Same on the palate. Well balanced wine, need to pick up more while its cheap. — 15 days ago
