Wine of the Week - Carivintâs "Bam" NV Blend


Carivintâs is a winery that's impressed me not only with their wines, but also with their support of animal rescue.  Each of their wines is labelled with and named after a rescue pet.  This week's wine is "Bam."

A non-vintage blend of Grenache, Barbera, Merlot, and Petite Verdot from Santa Barbera County, this is an excellent wine.

Candy apple on the nose, as well as bubble gum and maybe a little Jolly Rancher.  Basically just an overall candy scent.

Delicious dark flavors permeate this wine.  Charcoal and burnt wood.  (The vintner also mentioned anise, which I would agree with.)  Then it opens up into a fruity aftertaste; more of those Jolly Ranchers.

A great, strong, complex wine.  Highly recommended.

13.9% alcohol
