Seriously cool stuff. Built around a core of juicy fruit and accessible tannins, this quaffable red is a winner. There’s enough acidity to bring forth a sense of elegance too. A welcome CA addition to bunch loads of pointless stuff in this price range. Well done!

All day / all night summer sipper that impresses your slow coworker and your wife’s impossible snob squad member all at the same time. It’s a real unity wine where the philistine asshole and the lowly commoner will all converse and exchange pleasantries...until it’s gone. Then it’s time to return back to where everyone came from. Keep lots on hand and be like Obama

Hot damn. Oak is rocking with this fruit. Tannic, complex, blackberry, blueberry, light vanilla. This has ageability, but it's so delicious now.

This is the 2016 red carignan, not rose. Amazing bright fruit and stone. Bursting with flavor.

What an amazing rose! Orange in color. I get apricots and a bit of strawberry with some honey suckle, but the fantastic balance of acidity. So good!

One of the best rosés I've ever had. Nearly perfect.
