    May 27, 2009 - Interesting to taste this and I'm still in a quandary.

    There was good tannic grip, well-judged acidity and balancing level of fruit... yet perhaps I expected something less tight and more nuanced. I could see how this might be more interesting in a few years, but with no experience of the label, that was a difficult call to make.

    July 20, 2008 - Deep purple in colour, this Carignane showed sweet cherry fruit, vanilla and a hint of capsicum on the nose. The palate showed dark red fruit, spice and a little tobacco characters. Dry finish with supple tannins. Nice, but not overly complex.
