Region

Languedoc, France

Grapes

100% Carignan

Tasting notes

Carignan is much more than it's typical spicy complexity, and when it's not blended and made purely of carignan, the wine can show off it's ripe strawberry and plum aromas and tart cranberry flavors with little hints of savory herbs. Like a light bodied CA zinfandel but with more rusticity and wildness to the nose.

Pairs with

Milk chocolate, chocolate pie, truffles
