Ordered this @lasjaraswines release back in October. Since shipping wine is a colossal nightmare I had it shipped to Louisiana and waited until Christmas to grab it. Repacked it in my bag and transported it back to Philly today. At long last I started with the old vines carignan and boy did it not disappoint. Much like my experience as a Jew at a Louisiana Christmas - this guy is spicy but smooth, juicy and complex - overall, a holiday-time delight!
