The 2009 Wild Carignan Reserve shows this drinking about as well as I thought it would at this stage. It has come together well. A bit sharp on the finish initially, it has a lovely mouth-feel and silky texture. The high acid comes through and it finishes with a lively burst. The tannins emerge with an hour of air and become rather gripping as well. The gamey nuances in the background give it a lot of character, adding a little forest floor, earth and herbs, although neither those aspects nor the high acidity will be everyone’s first choice. There is a shrill edge here early on, but I loved how this developed, too, becoming more complex, intense and focused with the acidity lacing the fruit into the palate. Overall, this isn’t the fruitiest or most concentrated in the mid-palate of this vertical, but it shows beautifully. It is an expressive early effort that should continue to drink well for several years and can still improve if stored well. The acidity should help preserve it, Remember that these are food wines, not sweet and fleshy modern stuff. They will do much better with the right food matchup than on their own. There were 5,990 bottles produced. Drink now-2022. .

Wine maker notes
This wine was produced from dry-farmed vines on the slopes of the Judea hills, where the constant search for water causes the roots to penetrate deep into the mineral subsoil. The vines are ”head trained” (Gobelet), giving them an ancient, wild appearance. The wine was minimally filtered, and is brought to you as is; true, natural wine from Israel .

Technical notes
100% Carignan

Food pairing
Delicious with grilled red meats and hearty stews. Serve slightly cooler than room temperature.
