2000 Bonny Doon Carignane Old vines

Type: Carignane
Principal varietal(s): Carignane

We're becoming major believers in Carignane-based wines, having had several excellent ones recently. Despite its high alcohol, this old-vine red is very French-like: firmly structured, elegant, nicely tannic. The spicy, full dark cherry and blackberry fruit is beautifully ripe and sweet, the finish clean. And the Randall Grahm label notes are entertaining as always. An excellent buy if you can find it. - WB Team 2001-07-24
