Carnala is a complete sensory experience in a glass! With enticing aromas of dried cherries, baking spices, tobacco, herbs, plum, cranberries and a hint of oak, every sip is a journey for your senses. The palate is lush and full of plum, black licorice, graphite, white pepper, an assortment of baking spices. The fleshy light tannins enhance the delicate structure of the wine with a lingering finish.
2021 proved to be a remarkable one for winegrowing, providing the ideal climate for producing exquisitely balanced wines with outstanding flavor profiles. In Carnala, all three grape varietals were hand-picked from the steep slopes of the Thibido Vineyard. The fruit benefitted from cool foggy mornings which led to longer hanging time on the vine and extended maturation. This growing season yielded an incredible crop of fruit with ideal acidity and intricate flavors. As a winegrower and winemaker, Josh was overjoyed with the quality of the 2021 fruit and eager to craft these estate wines from the Thibido Vineyard.
