2012 Joseph Swan "Côtes du Rosa" Russian River Valley Carignane

Longtime Swan fans, take note: This appears to be the last vintage of "Côtes du Rosa" after a 20-year run. The tiny yields from the old Carignane vines just didn't make sense anymore for the owners of Mancini Ranch--and in 2010, there was no harvest at all. As interest in the varietal diversity of California continues to grow, more vineyards are being planted over to Pinot and Cab. Something to ponder while popping the cork on the last "Côtes du Rosa." From the winemaker's tasting notes: "Medium ruby, a fairly light color for the CDR. Typical aromatics o... Read More »

2013 Ferrer Ribière "Empreinte du Temps" Carignan Côtes Catalanes

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2013 Côtes Catalanes Empreinte du Temps Carignan is a beauty, with textbook purple fruits, black cherry, old leather, violets and wild-herb characteristics giving way to a medium-bodied, pure, elegant red that has bright acidity and fine tannin. Coming from 136-year-old Carignan vines and aged in older barrels, this is a brilliant rendition of Carignan that will evolve nicely for over a decade. (JD)" (4/2015) K&L Notes: Bruno Ribiere is an intellectual and fond of writing poetry. Lucky for us, he is also fond of making very intellectually deep and soulful wines i... Read More »

2013 Donkey & Goat Mendocino County Carignane

From the Winery; "75 year old dry farmed Carignane vines from Mendocino produced a wine worthy of its Spanish heritage. This is a meaty yet nimble red wine that stands up with an array of fall cuisine and pleases many crowds with its versatility." Barrel aging: 8 months in neutral French Oak tank

2009 Porter Creek Mendocino County Old Vine Carignane

90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Vivid red. Raspberry, cracked pepper and a whiff of rose oil on the nose. The palate offers sour cherry and raspberry flavors and a hint of candied licorice braced by a firm acid spine. Nicely concentrated, sweet and very persistent wine with soft tannins adding shape and grip. Already attractive and open-knit; this may gain complexity with some bottle age but I'd drink it now for its exuberant fruit." (6/2011) K&L Notes: In addition to the lovely range of wines made from the Porter Creek estate in the Russian River, the winery makes a small amount of old vine Carign... Read More »

2008 Porter Creek Mendocino County Old Vine Carignane

Wine Spectator: "Vivid ruby. Intensely floral aromas of raspberry, baking spices, rose and incense expand with air. Stains the palate with sweet red and dark berry compote flavors, becoming livelier with air. A vibrant candied floral quality builds on the finish and absorbs the supple tannins. While this will no doubt age well, there's nothing to prevent drinking it now." (5/2010)

2006 Porter Creek "Angeli Vineyard" Old Vine Carignane

From Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright ruby. Intensely perfumed aromas of cassis, dark cherry, licorice and cracked pepper. Deep and sappy, with concentrated red and dark berry liqueur flavors and mounting spiciness. Became fresher and fruitier with aeration, suggesting that it needs decanting or a little bottle aging to show its best." (May/June '08) Located in California's Russian River Valley, Porter Creek Vineyards is owned and operated by father and son George and Alex Davis. A proponent of biodynamic and organic viticulture at the... Read More »

2009 Domaine Léon Barral "Jadis" Faugères

90 points Wine Spectator: "Very ripe and intense, with dense flavors of dark chocolate, spiced cherry and mocha. A touch brooding midpalate, with plenty of grip on the peppery finish. Drink now through 2017. (KM)" (10/2012)

2014 Maxime Magnon "Rozeta" Corbieres

This field blend of mostly Carignan, with Grenache, Syrah, Grenache Gris, Macabou and Terret, is vinified with no sulfur during fermentation, and enjoys a low-impact elevage in used Burgundy barrels from a producer in Chassagne-Montrachet. Importer Kermit Lynch says of the vintner: "Maxime is part of the new wave of passionate viticulteurs who cultivate their vines with the utmost respect for nature and the soil. He’s certified organic, but also incorporates biodynamic practices into his vineyard management."
