nose of ripe and sour cherries, minerals/stone and a very slight good vegetal. I'm not very familiar with Carignane except in blends, but this reminds me of a ripe Cali Sangiovese. The tannin remnants from the wine covered the entire outside of the bottle, literally 360 degrees top to bottom. Delicious wine which hung tight with the curry venison cube steaks, purple potatoes and arugula salad, although I feel its sweet spot would have been pork chops or a rich pasta dish. I need to buy more Carignane when I find it.
