Top Carignane Tasted 3/14

5. Broc Cellars Carignan Alexander Valley (2012)

« Prev 5 of 5
Previously available for $27.95
Carbonic maceration, organic farming, native yeasts. Spicy on the nose and high-toned if graced with nuanced meaty, smoky, black olive and leathery aromas. Bright on entry and quite acid driven in the mouth, this is packed with juicy red fruit, all cranberry and wild cherry. There’s a nice touch of minerality to the palate and a hint of pomegranate on the backend that leads to a moderately long, acid driven and very zesty finish. A chillable red that would make for a fabulous picnic wine, and an intriguing red option for serving with fish. 86pts
