Lovely! Old vine Carignane grown in the very far north of Alexander Valley. It's sits in an area called Oat Valley - just north of Cloverdale. These are a very old planting of Carignane - head pruned and interplanted with petite sirah, zinfandel, and grenache. It takes quite a while for the carignane vines to ripen and by then all the other vines have turned to raisins. The carignane ripens just about the time the mighty cabernet sauvignon flexes its muscles in the valley - and boy are they different!! This 2014 Carignane is bright rhubarb-Cherry fruit with tons of butterscotch, vanilla, and maple syrup influence from the sexy french oak barrels it marinaded in for the last 15 months!! Try a taste and you will be hooked just like Mickey Friend and Lulu!! Salute!! -Nancy
