A truly lovely Carignane, organically grown, dry-farmed and from a single vineyard, a 100% varietal example of how well Carignane can grow in Mendocino when well-tended and allowed to be itself. Rich, luxurious and smooth, the wine is also dark and brooding, incredibly fruity, like a liquid cherry-raspberry tart topped with vanilla ice cream.
