So this is new and unexpected much like most of this year. Does anyone know what is happening? Didn’t think so. But I do know that it seems in Israel they are doing Carignan justice. It has a heavy silk body, heavy on blue and black fruit and some...tobacco? The structural elements are all in balance it is a well built house, perhaps in the style of...I was gonna say Gaudi because there is a lot happening but it doesn’t feel so avant- garde. I should have food with this.
