The 2018 Mendocino Carignan is a deep, inky magenta with woody manzanita and cigar box aromas. Rich flavors of mulberry and crispy pie crust with hints of bergamot and violet lead to a texture of fine, supple leather. 

The 2018 Mendocino Carignan is a deep, inky magenta with woody manzanita and cigar box aromas. Rich flavors of mulberry and crispy pie crust with hints of bergamot and violet lead to a texture of fine, supple leather. A masculine, strong tannin backbone with a touch of habanero pepper on the finish, this Carignan finishes with a mustang kick!

Winemaker Notes

Two separate fermentations-one using whole cluster (which represents 80% of the blend) and the other destemmed fruit. These were fermented at low temperatures with manual punchdowns and pigeage. Aged for 15 months in 30% new French oak.
