Big Basin 2019 Wirz Vineyard Old Vine Carignane (Cienega Valley)

Editors' Choice

This old vine bottling is a strong argument for California growers to plant Carignane and then get in a time machine. Crunchy aromas of black raspberry, elderberry, lavender, white pepper, dark meats and crumpled purple flowers slide into a tense palate that's still quite young. Flavors of wild berry, red and purple flowers and tea spice make for a dynamic experience. Matt Kettmann
