2015 Carignane

 . The McPherson Carignane was not barrel aged, but produced exclusively in stainless to give a more fruit forward style, which accentuates the hints of black cherry and berry jams that make this such an attractive variety. We bottled this wine young to nurture these attributes of Carignane, which was one of my father’s (Doc McPherson) favorite varietals to enjoy!

 Carignane, Carinena, Mazuelo are all synonyms for this very old variety of wine grape and is generally recognized being native to Spain. The grape is high yielding, high acid and generally has a deep color, with moderate tannins; late ripening requires heat, which makes it a perfect fit for Texas.
