There were times when Carignane was the most planted grape variety in the world. Its origins are from the coastal vineyards of the Mediterranean Sea. In California Carignane was grown statewide and it was the base for many wonderful wines in the early days of winemaking. Today a few rare old vineyards such as Trentadue Estate are still standing and proudly producing delicious wines. This grape is a relatively late ripening variety, and it has a tendency to produce large crop given the opportunity. Only one acre remains of our Old Vines planted back in 1896 and it is well passed its heavy bearing years. The vines are also dry farmed and that contributes to the lower yields as well. Our 2018 Carignane exhibits abundant aromas and flavors of Bing cherries, dark plums and wild berries. There is an intricate complexity in this wine often associated with Old Vines. Serve with roasted meats, savory vegetable dishes and a variety of rustic cheeses. Cheers!
