Carnal

Carnal is an ideal fall wine, perfect for cooler evenings. This Red Blend includes California Cabernet, Chilean Malbec, Australian Shiraz and Merlot from Washington state. With a prominent oak nose upon opening the bottle, this wine eases into an elegant and balanced aroma as it breathes. The blend of wines create a complex and multidimensional wine that exhibits a structured composition with a distinct beginning, middle and end to the tasting experience. Look for hints of fruit, spice, rich mahogany and very subtle notes of clove in the finish. The intensity resulting from the concentrated flavors, gripping tannins and bright acidity is nothing short of visceral.
