Recanati Wild Carignan Reserve 2019
Dark ruby in color, this wine has a bouquet of dark plums, bramble berries and a hint of summer farm stand. It has flavors of blackberry, ripe cherry, bittersweet chocolate, espresso bean and olive tapenade wrapped up in supple tannins. There is a pleasant but unexpected note of jalapeño on the finish.
A vibrant, lively take on Carignan, with juicy pomegranate flavors set against a backdrop of mesquite, white pepper and smoked sweet spice, all framed by fine-grained tannins and a fresh beam of acidity. Kosher. Drink now through 2026.
