2017 Carignan, Redwood Valley
In the glass, this Carignan from Redwood Valley has a rich crimson color that glows purple along the rim. The earthy nose evokes scents of licorice and spice. A plush, fruit-forward palate showcases mid-summer plum, blackberry pie and ripe fig, accentuated by cassis and earthy spice. The finish is crisp, yet complete. A beautiful food wine.
