2015 Broken Compass Carignane
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.

Ratings
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.
Awards
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.
Vineyard Notes
One of the oldest remaining vineyards in the Olivet Road region of the Russian River Valley, Saitone was planted in 1895 by Antonio Saitone and is now farmed by Ulises Valdez. The head-pruned vines are farmed without trellising or irrigation and produce tiny, concentrated berries that can take until the end of October to fully ripen. Of the nearly 17 acres of old vines planted, Zinfandel, Carignane, and Alicante Bouschet are the most abundant while French Colombard, Petit Bouschet, and Grand Noir can be found sprinkled among the various blocks. We only get the Carignane portion of this vineyard.
