Carignane 2022 Edaphos - Ernest Vineyards
$32.00   750mL
The Trimble Vineyard, just east of Hopland, CA was planted in 1941, or 1942, depending on which member of the Trimble family you ask. The old sprawl plantings of head pruned vines are certified organic through CCOF and entirely dry farmed on well drained, loamy soils. The Mediterranean climate, provides warm days and cool nights, culminating in a later harvest that comes in just ahead of the fall frost.

The 2022 Carignane boasts captivating aromas of ripe red fruits and wild herbs. Intertwined with these alluring scents are earthy undertones and hints of cedar, adding layers of complexity. On the palate, the tannins from these 80 year old vines assert themselves with a firm grip, showcasing a profusion of luscious red plums and succulent blackberries. The wine's vibrant red fruit flavors take center stage, creating a delightful interplay with the herbaceous notes. This wine is poised to mature gracefully, promising even more refined and harmonious flavors in the coming months and years.
