When Andrew Carini heard that there was Old Vine Grenache available at the Besson Vineyard, he immediately secured it sight unseen. These 103-year-old organic, dry farmed vines produce fruit with great color, intensity and flavor and, in turn, rich wines with elegance and precision. The Carini 2013 Grenache offers aromas and flavors of strawberry, violet and orange zest with earthier notes of licorice, pine and baking spices. This wine has excellent purity of fruit, a mouth coating texture, silky tannins, and fresh minerality.
