Wine Review: This opaque and very dark ruby colored “Old Vine” Carignane opens with a raspberry and cinnamon bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied with medium acidity. The mouthfeel is juicy and balanced. The flavor profile is a salami, oak, and black raspberry blend with notes of stony minerality and black plum. I also detected hints of cinnamon, black pepper, and black licorice. The finish is dry and its dusty tannins show nice length. This Carignane would pair nicely Angus steak tips. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Bright and fruity with a little spice, the 2019 Post & Vine Contra Costa Carignane is engaging and vibrant. Raspberry, blackberry, and plummy fruit combine with fresh aromas of crushed rock and earthy spice followed by hints of violets and a silky texture. Lighter in body than the Old Vine Field Blend and made from 120-year-old vines planted in the sandy soils of Contra Costa, this wine is fun and fresh and can be served slightly chilled.
