2019 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 2019 Counts Selection Carignane opens with blackberry aromatics that jump from the glass intermingled with notes of raspberry and cranberry. Ripe, juicy flavors of red cherry and blackberry cover the palate with a hint of licorice and a touch of black pepper that lead to a long, savory finish.

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 grapes were harvested on September 30th 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 French oak barrels, 13% new, for 15 months before bottling.
