Welcome to our latest installment of #WinephabetStreet brought to you by Dracaena Wines and Trio North Wildwood. In this series, Debbie Gioquindo and I work our way through the wine world one letter each month. We discuss the characteristics and history of the grape, as well as suggested wine pairings. So uncork, unscrew or saber that bottle and connect with us as we chat, laugh and drink wine all in a laid back atmosphere.
C is for Carignane
Carignan, also spelled Carignane goes by Cariñena in its original home of Cataluña. It is black-skinned grape variety, known for its thick skin. It is also grown in Southern France where it is often blended with Grenache (Garnacha). The end result varies significantly depending on the climate in which it is grown. Typically, you can expect a spicy character, high acid, intense color, and robust tannins.
