Chilled this slightly and it was perfect. Crunchy dark fruit, black pepper and menthol.

Black cherries and a hint of spice, easy tannins and no perceptible oakiness. Nice pairing for roasted chicken. Still pretty tight so give it air for 30+ minutes to let it open.

Super juicy black and blue fruit, with a funky-cheese retro-nasal thing going on. Trust me, that's a good thing.

Brambly berries, leather, game, flowers, menthol, baked earth. Exhibits the wild side of Carignane yet remains balanced and elegant.

Very good full bodied carignane. Excellent fruit of strawberries, plums, cherries. Good acidity and a bunch of floral/herbal tones. Tasting pretty great right now.
