Evangel Vineyard Carignan 2018

I enjoyed it because for me, this shows true #Carignane typicity. High acid, tangy crunchy, red Apple aromas and flavors. Rich ripe fruit. Subtle sweet spice. This #carignan it reminded me a lot of the #cariñena I make. — 2 years ago

L'Emotion Coteaux du Languedoc Red Rhone Blend 2018

8.9

#blend of 28% #Syrah, 26% #Grenache, 24% #Carignan, 15% #Cinsault and 7% #Mourvèdre, all aged a year in older demi-muids and 500-liter casks. 13.5% alcohol, medium-bodied, even hollow on mid-palate. It's red-fruited and has overtones of savory spice (think salami, cracked pepper and star anise) and a bright, juicy medium finish #languedocrousillon #languedoc #suddefrance #france #larsac #terrassesdularsac — 2 years ago

Lioco

Sativa Mendocino Carignan 2016

Blood-ruby, undiluted tenor from rim to rim. Blackberry-cran with a smoky coat, violets, raspberry reduction, wild nettle, suede, rose petal, dried cherry, applewood, and gingerly ginger, spare cedar, finest snuff, cherry pit and damp clove spiced nose. All with a slight memory of campfire. Black plum, cedar, violet, dried, sour cherry, dark leather, peppercorn, dried cranberry and red currant, cinnamon apple, fine, grippy tannins that integrate into the whole with a pleasing sense of herbs and bitters, sage and lavender. Did not expect this complexity from carignan, and floral notes that evoke like Nebbiolo. Class. .

Very fine. Subtle elegant aromas. It doesn’t seem like a #carignan it seems more like a #grenache #garnacha or even a muscular #pinotnoir #côtescatalanes #cotescatalanes — 3 years ago

9.0

Polished wine. Interesting. I like it from a postural, viticultural standpoint but the end result for me is slightly too acidic and lacking intensity of aromas and flavours and the finish is only medium. It’s a very nice wine and pleasurable, but for me, it’s lacking a bit of good ol funk to cost 30-35$. #carignan #sonoma — 3 years ago

9.1

An interesting blend and a perfect alternative to modern day #priorat This is #costersdelsegre and seems to be a blend of #Garnacha #Grenache #carignan #cariñena #syrah although I felt there is some Cabernet somewhere in there. Ripe and full bodied. #spain — 2 years ago
