From vines planted between 1927 and 1952! This is a rustic red, very much in the style of Rhone and Southern French wines, with leathery, brambly flavors and a lasting, old-school finish. Fantastic wine when served with grilled meats. From the winemaker: 'Stan Buchignani's ranch is located on Dutcher Creek Road, in the hills on the far western edge of the Alexander Valley appellation. The majority of the vineyard's carignane was planted in the 1940s. Stan's grandfather, Dominico Cerruti, planted the first block in 1927; his father, Dino, planted the last in the early 1950s. The vineyard's climate bears a strong resemblance to that of upper Dry Creek Valley three miles to the south, where days are warm. Fog, which tends to hang low in the valley, burns off sooner in the hills. Carignane from Buchignani is complex, its fine structure much like that of a field-blend zinfandel.'
