2014 Carignane | Forchini vineyard
144 cases produced | enjoy now through 2025
This special vineyard block is just north of the winery, and has 70-80 year-old Carignane vines that produce concentrated, flavorful grapes. Our 2014 may be Rick’s best vintage of this varietal: its rich aromas of blackberry and creamy oak introduce the full-bodied, dark-fruit-highlighted wine spiced with hints of black pepper and licorice. The finish is sustained for a long while. This one is wonderful to sip on its own, but even better with a good meal. A recently-opened bottle tasted even better on the second and third day!
