Gnekow 2000 Nies Old Vine Carignane (Lodi)

Best Buy

Any century-old vines that remain in California must be paid attention to. This wine celebrates a varietal usually thought of as inferior. But the wine is intense and thought-provoking. It's dark in color and in tone, with flavors of plums, black cherries and dark chocolate, and very dry. It's too soft in acidity, and would earn extra points if it were crisper. But it's a fascinating character study.
