Sativa Mendocino Carignan 2016

Blood-ruby, undiluted tenor from rim to rim. Blackberry-cran with a smoky coat, violets, raspberry reduction, wild nettle, suede, rose petal, dried cherry, applewood, and gingerly ginger, spare cedar, finest snuff, cherry pit and damp clove spiced nose. All with a slight memory of campfire. Black plum, cedar, violet, dried, sour cherry, dark leather, peppercorn, dried cranberry and red currant, cinnamon apple, fine, grippy tannins that integrate into the whole with a pleasing sense of herbs and bitters, sage and lavender. Did not expect this complexity from carignan, and floral notes that evoke like Nebbiolo. Class. .

Les Darons Languedoc Grenache Blend 2015

#frenchwine #redwine #languedoc #frenchredwine the #grenache, #syrah and #carignan are having a fruity party in my mouth. The perfect wine to drink at this transitional time of the year. Notes of Strawberry and raspberry provide the foundation and topped off with a hint of minerals. Very affordable, 2 thumbs up for this one! 👍🏻👍🏻 #lesdarons well done #jeffcarrel — a year ago

Château Ollieux Romanis

Les Ollieux Romanis Corbières Red Blend 2016

Vacationing in Europe is all about intriguing wine discoveries. Here’s a #corbieres red blend of semi-dried #syrah , #grenache and #carignan. First pour reveals a rich nose of raisins with a touch of toasted oak and vanilla. It’s a full-bodied red and like many wines of France, I find it really improves after a day after uncorking. This wine held up well paired with lamb masala curry. — 2 years ago

I love this wine. so minty and rhubarb and toast on the nose. It breaks barriers it breaks anything I’ve known in wine so far. Pure old vine #carignan with a pinch of #syrah — a month ago

Domaine du Colibri

Le Petit Tour Ventoux Red Rhone Blend 2016

First red made by Olivier Legranger, former enologist for Xavier Vins. Blackberry, mulberry, espresso. Displays an intensity and vigor that comes from a big hit of 60 y/o Carignan. Not your usual simple, grapey Ventoux! #domaineducolibri #ventoux #carignan #grenache #rhone — a year ago

Polished wine. Interesting. I like it from a postural, viticultural standpoint but the end result for me is slightly too acidic and lacking intensity of aromas and flavours and the finish is only medium. It’s a very nice wine and pleasurable, but for me, it’s lacking a bit of good ol funk to cost 30-35$. #carignan #sonoma — a month ago
