Lioco Carignan Indica Red Wine

I recently had a chance to try this lovely red wine and was quite impressed. This is an uncommon grape grown in CA. that used to be common.  See the below commentary and description from the winery. Retails about mid 20s per bottle.

This is an old-timey, “heritage-wine” that harkens back to pre-prohibition days. Featuring a nearly extinct (in California), yet once prolific grape called Carignan, it hits similar notes as the classic bistro wines of Europe such as Beaujolais, Cotes du Rhone, and Dolcetto. Welcomes a slight chill.
