We are delighted to offer you this exciting discovery from South Africa as the Basson family were one of the first families to plant Carignan there. At the age of 17, young Cobus Basson Read More...
was helping his father plant vines when a tractor overturned and rolled onto him, causing the loss of a leg. Blessed with a generous sense of humor, he has been affectionately known amongst local farmers as “Houtbeen” (Pegleg) Basson. This is a medium-bodied wine with sumptuous red and black fruits. The color is medium ruby with a bouquet of strawberry preserves, plum and mulberry, which is reflected on the palate. The finish is medium in length and quite pleasing, leaving you ready for more. Wine Spectator says of this wine, “Bright and very peppery, with bouncy tobacco and spice-infused fig fruit flavors. Lively finish.” Adored wine critic and author Jancis Robinson also writes of Pegleg as a successful expression of Carignan.

A garageiste movement in Chile? Why not? And they’ve found a bunch of other like-minded, interesting independent winemakers to form a type of autonomous collective? Beautiful! Read Read More...
more about MOVI on indievintner.com for the full story. We’re going to focus on the wine, which happens to be an incredible dry-farmed, 70+ years old-vine Carignan out of the Maule Valley, the largest and one of the oldest wine valleys in Chile. And such a wine this is! The nose starts with spicy, peppery briar and cedar woods that almost immediately lead to sweet, dark fruits: boysenberry and framboises. This is a jammy, thick, serious nose that’s also trés sexy. The palate continues the conversation of fruit and spice with ribbons of silky, sweet, smooth and spice-filled tendrils of flavor that coat the tongue: jammy preserves of dark, ripe red berry fruits, dusty cherries and fresh-pressed cherry juice with a touch of raspberry for character. This is unctuous, real, awesome wine-- this is Carignan? WOW. Just WOW.

While the grapes for Lioco’s Rosé may come from California, it is a dead ringer for something you typically find in France! Lioco sourced grapes are from a mid-century planting of dry-farmed, head-Read More...
pruned Carignan (a varietal commonly found in the Rhône Valley of France) located in Mendocino’s Redwood Valley. The combination of vine age, an extended growing season, and tougher soil conspire to produce complex, intense wines. The wine was cold fermented in stainless steel tanks, finished bone dry, and completed a long, slow malolactic fermentation which balanced the naturally high acidity. The resulting wine is intensely aromatic with rose petals, pomegranate, watermelon, and cranberry. Good acidity ensures a fresh, clean, vivacious profile, and keeps the mouth watering for more. By far, one of the best domestic rosés of the year!
