Carignan (care-in-yen) wines have long been known for value, however as the worlds vineyards age it has finally become known for quality. Its fruit-forward red fruit and baking spice flavors, along with subtle notes of umami, make it the perfect food wine. Carignan adds red-fruit flavors of raspberry and cranberry sauce. Carignan adds spice flavors of cinnamon and star-anise. Carignan offers umami flavors of smoked and cured meats. Carignan (aged with a touch of oak) adds flavors of sandalwood and baking spices.
