Meli 2010 Carignan

Price: Around $15

Rating: ★★★½☆

Color: Deep red

Nose: Black cherries, plums, leather and earth

Taste: Medium bodied with mild tannins.  Inky and jammy at the same time with a smooth medium finish.

Summary: If you like earthy flavors that taste like they come from ancient vines, this wine is right up your alley.  93% Carignan and 7% Cabernet Sauvignon makes this an interesting blend.  An ideal accompanyment to hearty meat based dishes and stews.  This wine benefits greatly from an extended period of aeration of at least an hour.
