Top Carignane Tasted 3/14

3. Bedrock Wine Company Carignane (2012)

« Prev Next » 3 of 5
Previously available for $40.00
From vines planted in 1888 My 3/8, the group’s 2/8 At first this was somewhat tight on the nose with hints of creamy French oak and some coconut nuance but air brought out fruity and bright spicy nuanced wild black cherry and boysenberry fruit. Round and complete in the mouth, this is a bit creamy and almost lush in this company with juicy wild berry fruit flavors in the mouth framed by assertive but not imposing toasty oak, which lends sweetness particularly on the moderately long finish. Gaining aromatic complexity with air this shows the best potential for improvement in the bottle as it’s a touch raw and slightly tannic this evening, though it still makes for fun drinking. 89pts
