Ruby black color. Aromas and flavors of baked berries, ripe strawberry, pastry crusts, olives, allspice, and chocolate-caramel sauce with a satiny, crisp, fruity light-to-medium body and a graceful, carefree finish displaying impressions of hint of mint with no oak flavor. A rich and sultry red that offer delicious notes of chocolate-covered berries.

Carignane

Serve in a Zinfandel Wine Glass
Carignane is a red grape that is planted in the Languedoc-Roussillon in southern France as well as in California and Italy, where it is known as Carignano. In France it is bottled on its own or sometimes blended, as in a Rhone Valley red. In California, it is made as a varietal wine by a few producers, such as Ridge, while it is a serious red in the Sulkies district of Sardinia.

A Carignano wine can be light and fruit with ripe blackberry flavors or it can be rich and spicy with a rustic, wild edge. Pair these wines with game, grilled foods and aged cheeses.
