Old Vines Carignan (Chloe)

According to winemaker Joel Burt, “This wine is bright and dark, dense and light, tight and supple all at once. For so much chaos, there is incredible cohesion and that is what I love about Carignan. It is a bit of an explosion of flavor and it is all held together by freshness. This wine will be an incredible ager or when young, give it a quick decant.”
