Grant Station Carignane 2018
Back when trains were king, Foppiano Vineyards had several of its own rail tankers dedicated to transporting wine from the winery in Healdsburg back to the East Coast. The tankers were loaded on a special railway spur called “Grant Station” along the Northwestern Pacific Railroad. Our Carignane vineyard now grows near where the station once stood and therefore carries the name of “Grant Station”. It is consistently the last lot of grapes harvested off our Estate Vineyard. The vineyard block is just over 2 acres and usually yields about 5 tons total. Per usual for this cuvee you can tell this will be delicious upon first whiff. Santa Rosa plum, lilac, shiitake mushrooms and roasted Aleppo pepper in the nose give way to juicy flavors of fresh plum, dark cherry, blackberry tart, toasted coriander and grilled meat. The luscious, soft tannins lead to a vanilla and rose petal flecked velvety finish that very slowly fades away.
