Carignane, a very under utilized grape originating from Spain, is usually used as a blending grape. However, when treated properly, this grape can yield a very stunning and robust wine. The team at Porter Creek has surely highlighted what this misunderstood grape has to offer. Bursting with a bouquet of dried cranberries, forest floor, and chicory, the palate reveals liquorice, raspberry and cinnamon. Pair this bold beauty with baked tomatoes, an aged gouda or a bacon pizza.
