2007 Carignane Dessert Wine
Block 4 Carignan Vineyard
French Oak / 12 Years
This might be the most special Carignane dessert wine we've ever made, limiting purchase to two bottles per customer. Candied apples and earthy sweet smoke form a wine core that evokes flavors of cedar chest, dark chocolate and dark cherries.
Vines planted in 1900. A head-trained vineyard planted in sandy loam soil on the west side of the Mokelumne River AVA.
Food Pairing Notes
Blue cheese stuffed figs and almonds or a nice after dinner cheese tray. Focaccia with rosemary for olive oil dipping or aged cheese but not sharp cheese. Espresso chocolate beans.
