MENDOCINO COUNTY CARIGNAN 2016
VINCA MINOR

Full-flavoured, distinctive Carignan vinified from organically grown fruit, sourced from dry-farmed vines averaging 85 years old.

  • Crunchy red berries give way, with air, to deeper black fruit aromas and Christmas cake spice.
  • Full-flavoured and concentrated, with blackcurrant, liquorice and meaty, smoky notes.
  • Winemaker Jason Edward Charles trained in Bordeaux and it shows in this polished, weighty red.
  • Drink up to 10 years after release.
  • An incredibly versatile food match; try with Thanksgiving roast turkey, or spicy stir-fried beef.
