Didn’t stand out in the tasting. Interesting blend. The Carignane did soften and add some perfume to the equation. Short finish.

Though it’s equal parts Carignan and Zin, the Carignan is so dominant on the palate. Oak and sweet vanilla on the nose, juicy red fruit in the front with cherry and underripe plum, mid palate shows medium acidity and slight petrol, finish is a little lacking.

Let this one sit a year or so. Opened up over time, carignane dominates. Only 13%, good food wine.
