Carignan from the Priorat? No, from Chile. and it is fantastic. Sweet, but not too much, discreetly fruity and somehow rustic, this is a treat.
Love it! A bit challenging on the palate due to its truly rustic flavour profile but so much fun. Lots of sour fruit as described by Mr. Lawrason, which for me, is delectable! Excellent buy and will definitely train & educate your palate.
This is a deeply concentrated wine. Firm and bold but balanced. Lots to love here!

This is very different and very good, showing what can be done when this under-respected and oft-maligned varietal is treated with the utmost respect and allowed to shine on its own. While unapologetically rough, with bruising tannins, it displays appealingly fragrant notes of blackberry, blueberry, earth, and herbs, with green olive, strawberry, and minerals coming later, the rich fruit and savoury earthiness balanced by surprising lemon-currant sourness on the palate, leading to a long finish. It lacks some complexity, and the sourness is a bit too much, but it's a tasty showcase, to be sure.
Rustic must be another word for puckering!! Definitely needs some serious salty protein to cut the tannins and sourness as per Szabo. It definitely lingers on the palate. I debated giving it a 90 but the sharpness and continued sourness left me with a 89. Still nice wine overall and a wonderful wine for the price!!
