TASTING NOTE: Old-vine Carignan takes center stage in the 2016 Cayrol. Lovely cherry fruit and a mélange of savory herbs and spices sweep across the palate. It's full-bodied, with a rich texture and firm tannins, so pair it with red meats or hard cheeses. Drink date: 2018-2024. Score - 91 (Joe Czerwinski, robertparker.com, April 27, 2018) Price $ 18.95
