Old-vine Carignane was whole cluster pressed after a short soak on the skins. Dark-ish salmon skin color, peppery watermelon, raspberry and blood orange and herbs de Provence smells and flavors, all neatly packed in a dry, vibrant Rosé that’s equally fruity and spicy. I tasted this in early March 2021 and, typical of early release Rosé wines, will taste even better (significantly better) this summer. With 61 cases made and an $18 price tag, it won’t be available come summertime. Plan ahead.
Post & Vine Owners/Winemakers Rebekah Wineburg and Erica Kinkaid launched with their 2012 Old Vine Field Blend. In 2020 Erica sold her portion of the business to Rebekah, who will continue Post & Vine with her husband John. 60-200 cases of Old Vine Field Blend is made each year, under 100 cases of Rosé. Both are delicious, unique and excellent value artisan wines that you should have in your wine collection. Read all my Post & Vine reviews HERE.
