Carménère is a long-lost Bordeaux grape that is rarely planted in California. It is notoriously tough to ripen and we often use it in blending, but in special years we release it as a standalone wine. This is only our third ever release, and with a blend of 97% Carménère and 3% Cabernet Sauvignon the grape’s personality shines through. It’s famed for spicy green flavors and aromatics: think bell pepper, oregano or serrano chili!
