2018 The Count's Selection Carignane

The Buena Vista Vinicultural Society, formed in 1863 by the winery's founder, Count Agoston Haraszthy to further improve its winemaking prowess and expand its vineyards, has been restored as a collection of unique small-production wines that honor the winery's pioneering spirit and contribution to California winemaking. The Vinicultural Society explores clonal selections, varietals and the incredible terroir of Sonoma County and beyond.

This Old Vine Carignane was harvested from head trained vines that were dry farmed in a canyon pocket southwest of Ukiah. The Caballo Blanco Vineyard is an 80 year old site known for producing distinct Carignane

Our 2018 Counts Selection Carignane opens with raspberry aromatics that jump from the glass intermingled with plum and fig notes. Juicy flavors of blueberry and red cherry coat the palate with a touch of orange peel with hints of limestone that lead to a long, lingering finish.



Our grapes were harvested on October 23 and were fermented in open top fermenters with hand punch-downs before the juice was gently extracted using a basket press. The wine was aged in Hungarian oak barrels, 5% new, for 13 months before bottling.
