Dry Farmed Carignan 2009 by Viña Santa Carolina

IMG_0631Grape Variety: 100% Carignan

Good plus wine with ripe dark red fruit and black cherries over dusty dried herbs and green peppers. The medium minus tannins are grippy and with the medium minus acidity give good structure. The finish is medium plus due to the high fruit intensity. Drink now and for 3-4 years.
