Carignan (“care-in-yen”) is a medium-bodied red wine that grows mostly in Southern France where it’s a major blending grape in Côtes Catalanes, Corbières, Minervois, Fitou and Faugères (located in Languedoc-Roussillon). For the longest time, Carignan was considered a low-quality wine grape, however many producers are reinvigorating old vineyards and making tremendously rich, red fruit-driven wines that will blow your mind.

Bright red fruit aromatics with hints of raspberry and strawberry. Thick and rich on the palette, silky smooth in texture. Drink now or cellar for 5 to 7 years. A key feature of the Burke vineyard is careful stressing of the vines by spacing them tightly. The vines react by deepening their roots to increase access to nutrients, and the result is very concentrated, rich flavors and textures in the fruit.

First and only vintage of this wine. Usually our wine maker does single vineyard wines, in this case two single vineyards had such small production that when blended to get the wine combined to make a really perfect marriage. The lean, bright acidity in the Frati Lane pinot noir, added to the rich lush fruit of the RLR vineyard. So putting these two vineyards together made for a very structured and sound wine.
