Carignan is a unique and fabulous varietal originating in the south of France and northern Spain. In Chile, it makes a wonderful wine with peppery spice flavors as well as abundant notes of black cherry and pomegranate. It is extremely floral and fresh, well-balanced, and complex. This wine is bound to be paired with just about anything from roasted vegetables in Mediterranean spices to a pizza with red sauce!
