This is one of my favorite varietals and you have done an excellent job of producing some fine wine with it. Touche'

Nice to see Carignane show-cased rather than buried in a blend. Lovely fruit but balanced somehow with a little bite or kick....from the Syrah? I enjoyed this wine with a meal built around grilled garlic and herb sausage made by Jason Azevedo of Testa Duro Salumi, Sacramento. The price of this wine is kind of high. I won't be buying it often.

I tried this one on Serena's recommendation, and she knew what I meant when I said I want to buy that one I can't pronounce. This is one amazing wine.

Okay, with this wine for dinner with my wonderful wine connoisseur husband... a quote came to mind from Jackie Gleason, "And a awaaaaaaaay we go!" This wine cut through the fat on the buffalo on the back end, baby!

Delivers big for the price. Balanced and true to the variety. Shows a light touch from the winemaker with just the right amount of oak showing. definitely a repeat purchase.

Beautiful dark red color, big bold, spicy with just the right amount of fruit. I would pair it with anything... it is great wine! Why would it matter what you are eating? Love it!!!
