2015 Broken Compass Carignane

Amazing deep purple color, with a cranberry nose and touches of sweet oak and bramble and salted black licorice. Lush on the front palate, it shows a more rustic midpalate that screams for charcuterie and other dried aged beef, then rounds out with a savory finish.

91 Pts Jeb Dunnuck The 2015 Broken Compass is all old vine Carignane sourced from Sonoma County. It offers loads of black fruits, beetroot, violets, and resinous herbs in a medium to full-bodied, juicy, vibrant style. It has good acidity, fine tannin, classic Carignane character and is going to drink nicely for 5-6 years.
90+ Pts Wine Advocate Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2015 Carignane Old Vine Broken Compass opens with baked blackberries and preserved plums notes with hints of pencil lead, fertile soil and dried herbs. Big, full-bodied, rich and firmly textured with chewy tannins, it has a tart, refreshing acid line and long, earthy finish.
