Trinafour 2013 Carignane, Niemi Vineyard Mendocino

Retail 26.99 – GGWC 24.99 


The Story: Carignane is the quiet Rhone Ranger varietal, the little brother of Syrah and Grenache.  The wine most wineries use as a blending grape, but I can tell that this small production Trinafour Carignane will surprise you in both the quality as well as the pocket book department. 


The Wine:  This 198 case production offers up an amazing aroma of lush cherries with exotic characters of black berries.  The wine is mouthwatering good.  On the expansive and full mid-palate one is greeted by lush black stone fruit, a touch of dark chocolate and a whiff of lively acidity. This layered and complex wine will surprise many, even the big Cabernet lovers!  Dense concentrated, lush and ripe fruit dominate this wine from start to finish where you crescendo into a long silky finish.

Serve wit:  Pot au feu, Skirt steak tacos, Roast chicken Provencal
