Blueberries. A fourth-of-july explosion of blueberries is what this wine tastes like to me. And I love it. I first tried the varietal at UNTI a couple of years ago, and I immediately responded to it. I've been exploring it ever since and the Bo makes a great one.

Winemaker's Notes:

The best carignane comes from the ugliest, most gnarled vines you can find and rest assured that the twisted beasts that produce our fruit could star in a horror flick. If you were to wander onto the Angeli vineyard - with its dead-looking soil - you'd probably think of Hitchcock before you thought of Hostess cupcakes, but once you try our Carignane you'll be dreaming of cherry fruit filling. The Rat is a real stunner. Whether you like toasty turnovers or cheesecakes, it won't disappoint. It's proof that you can't judge a book by its cover, or a wine by its vine.
