Made from 80-year-old vines, this blend of Carignan and Syrah is an intense, concentrated wine, with mint and black fruit flavors and a velvety texture from the wood aging. Made in a limited edition of 6,000 bottles, the wine is worthy of aging, a fine example of southern flavors allied to modern winemaking.
