If you’ve yet to try a pure expression of Carignane (or would like another taste), you’re in for a real treat with Late Arrival. This luscious California exclusive showcases just how fabulous this grape variety can be.

Due to its tendency to ripen late, Carignane (aka, Carignan in France and Cariñena in Spain) has historically been relegated to red-wine blends – but it takes center stage in Late Arrival. Thanks to the Lodi region’s warm, sunny climate and excellent 2016 vintage, the Carignane grapes had ample time to ripen to perfection and develop major flavor intensity.

A lovely purple color shines through in the glass, introducing dried cranberry and red raspberry aromas. With a silky-smooth texture and lush, gently spiced finish, Late Arrival will delight with roasted duck, dark-meat turkey, or rich vegetarian dishes.

Don’t be ‘late’ with your order – once word gets out about this gorgeous California Carignane, we expect it to fly off our cellar shelves.
