Sunday, September 10, 2023 - What a surprise; tasting really great and holding up well !! Cru Carignane !!
Perfect cork after over a decade in the bottle. Consumed over two days. This delicious potently extracted Carignane was dark ruby with medium clarity. Aromas of ripe strawberries, violets and forest floor. Flavors of bing cherry, sweet cranberry, and red currant with a medium to long mineral finish. This is a balanced wine with firm acidity and works best with food. An age worthy Carignane, I still have another bottle of this vintage remaining in my cellar and will sample again within a year to validate my tasting note. Great fruit source from the over 100-year old triangle block in Geyserville (Trentadue). A delightfully balanced wine from a challenging growing year that started cool with severe heat spike late in the growing season. Great winemaking from John Olney.
