Carignan without fruit is no fun!
Carignan is one of my favorite wines. Smooth (or low) tannins and nice fruit. I have had light bodied, medium bodied and full bodied Carignans from France, Italy, Spain and California and  (almost) always love 'em. So, I jumped at this one when I saw WW's and others' reviews touting the virtues of this wonderful varietal. With anticipation I opened it 2 nights ago, and, alas, was very disappointed: it was rather full bodied, but what happened to the fruit? It was totally flat and unattractive. So, I went back to BevMo's reviews and noted that one reviewer mentioned that the first night it did not meet his expectations, but on the second night it was quite good. So, I corked it up and waited 24 hours. On the second night there was still very little fruit, but quite a bit more body, but not yet "acceptable" So, I waited for the third night. Still not acceptable. Now, I have concluded that the bottle I opened could have been a "bad bottle" and will take both bottles back for a refund. "Life is too short to drink bad wine"...I opened up an old friend, a nice Merlot and my wife and I had a great evening.

I didn't like it at all right after opening, so I opened something else. The next day it tasted more like Carignan. I love that dark fruit. Maybe it's a sweet oak up front that I dislike so much, but it dissipates with time.

Earth and sun
Real earthy. Serve with grilled meat and grilled vegetables and some rustic bread. Think a very warm day in Southern France.
