Old Vines Sweet Berry Wine Carignan 2019

Sweet Berry Wine!! While this wine was definitely not sweet, the berries (cran and rasp) were very juicy and fresh; the perfect pairing with Thanksgiving dinner. This vintage was a very interesting and well-balanced blend dominated by carignan. And not a drop of this was spit out. No way, José! 52% Carignan, 25% Zinfandel, 12% Charbono, 11% Petite Sirah. 11/24/22 — a month ago

Perli Vineyard Syrah 2018

Assume that’s the vineyard in the inked drawing on the label. Fancy stuff at $48 per bottle…
Lovely deep red to purple color. Smells like musk, woods, campfire on your clothes. Maybe a cranberry or elderberry tone under it all. Interesting smell to it for sure. Flavors are also interesting. Old time tonics and herbal extractions. More elderberry stuff. Absinthe. Or is that Jegermister? The fruit is there too, but it’s under the savory and strange stuff. This is a wine to age. But it’s good now too if you are into the strange and earthy side of Syrah. A true terroir driven drinking experience. I can see the coast valleys of Mendo in the flavors.
