2017 Carignane

Our 2017 Carignane, our fifth vintage working with this grape and Camp 4 Vineyard, is our favorite yet.  We continued our process of semi-carbonic maceration in 1.5 ton bins. This results in the lithe texture and heightened aromatics of carbonic maceration, without sacrificing a sense of place or letting the process dominate its character. This year we macerated for 11 days before pressing to finish primary in barrel. As a result, this is the most deeply colored Carignane we have produced, with more brooding aromatics, though it is clearly in the same lineage as previous vintages. We are very proud of the continued growth this wine has seen, and feel this is the most complete expression yet of Camp 4.
