Tasting Notes

An old storied estate, records show the Parahy family owned vines in this Catalan countryside in 1448. This blend of old vines Carignan, Grenache and Syrah is a class act, rich with black raspberry darkness. Struck with gravel and roughened by notes of French herbs, a long finish of licorice stick rounds out the experience.

Staff Pick Notes

The Cotes du Rousillon sits on the French side of greater Catalonia against the foothills of the Pyrenees. Although now part of the Languedoc-Rousillon it possesses a unique cross-cultural terrain scattered with quality vineyards. This wine coming from Puig-Parahy family's multi-generational operation is an easy introduction to the rustic, savory regional character. A blend of primarily old vine Carignan with Grenache and Syrah it's bold red that will liven up with a rare steak any night of the week. Notes include plums, dates, licorice root and a touch of smoke on the finish. A landscape of the Pyrenees painted with solid, broad strokes.

Grown all over Europe and the Americas, Carignan (a.k.a. Carignane, Carignano, and Cariñena) is seldom seen as a 100% varietal wine. Many appellations of Languedoc-Roussillon must include a certain percentage of Carignan, but it is rarely the dominant grape in these blends. For years, this naturally high-yielding grape suffered from overproduction, but New World winemakers have lately taken up...

Syrah

We'd like to clear this up once and for all: the Shiraz grape is genetically identical to Syrah. Australian winemakers put "Shiraz" on the map (and, many would argue, vice versa), and the term is now used throughout much of the New World. Let it never be said, however, that Shiraz and Syrah are the same thing: the region in which the grape is grown determines much about the flavor of the wine it...
