Critic Notes

This is nicely layered with plenty of plum fruit intertwined between structured tannins and driven acidity. Rather chewy.

Score: 91-92/100James Suckling

Dark cherry red. Inviting, ripe, pure dark fruit with a lovely dusty quality. Firm, chewy and rich but finishes clean in the mouth, the tannins smooth and harmonious with the fruit and freshness. Tannins build on the finish. (JH)

Score: 16.5-/20Jancis RobinsonDrinking Window: Drink 2023-2030

Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2017 Carignan Prima delivers quite a lot of cedar over a cassis and black berry core with a waft of garrigue. Very firm and chewy, it has plenty of mid-palate fruit, with balanced freshness and very good length. Apr 2018, www.robertparker.com
