Pleasant tarry-tart black cranberry on the finish. Full-bodied with a velvet smooth texture. The Carignan grapes are dry farmed, which adds richness, depth and character to the wine. Dry farming means that the grapes are not irrigated and must rely on the rain water that nature provides, however little that is in dry climates like this one. It also has the effect of producing smaller grapes or berries with more concentrated flavours. Carignan food pairings: beef braciole stuffed with sausage and currants.
