Amplify Wines Carignane 2020 - 500ml

Region: California
Grape: Carignan
Drinks Best: Now

Seth's Notes:
I’m very seasonal in what I choose to drink meaning in the heat of a Carolina summer I gravitate to wines that are refreshing and serve chilled.  But that doesn’t mean that red wines are not a part of my life until the leaves start to fall. In these warmer months my reds of choice are more often a fresher red that can be served with a bit of a chill like the Amplify Carignan.  The AMplify bursts with bright red cherry and red raspberry fruit but still shows some gritty mineral notes on the finish giving it enough stuffing for a great match for something coming off the grill but still light enough on its feet to keep you wanting another sip instead of weighing you down.  Even better, the 500ml bottle is the perfect ‘single serve’ for the next time you’re inviting to a cook out.

What's Cooking?

A charcoal grilled steak of your choice from Alamentari at Left Bank topped with chimichurri served with duck fat fried crushed baby potatoes

What do I like to drink?

I tend to lean into ‘old world’ styles of wines - but that doesn’t mean only wines from the old world - that have great acidity to them. These wines are naturally food friendly... and I like to do some damage in the kitchen. But overall I’m a very seasonal wine drinker - warm weather has me leaning into fresh rosés and vibrant whites and when the weather turns cool, I love some Nebbiolo and heavier reds to go with the braised and richer foods of the season.
