WE BOUGHT HARRY POTTER THEMED WINE! We went with the Horcrux Red to review first, and it blew our expectations. This vintage of Horcrux is 100% Carignan from 127 year old vines in Oakley, CA. It’s medium-bodied, earthy, and super yummy.

Horcrux (noun): An object in which a person a placed a piece of his or her soul.
Carignan (“care-in-yen”) wines have long been known for value, however as the world’s vineyards age it has finally become known for quality. Its fruit-forward red fruit and baking spice flavors, along with subtle notes of umami, make it the perfect food wine.
With its bold red fruit and earthy-meaty notes, Carignan is ideal with richer poultry dishes (turkey, duck), roasted pork, or even a meaty beef brisket. The thing to keep in mind with this wine is to expand on its natural spice flavorings of cinnamon, cumin, 5-spice powder, star anise and dried herbs by also adding them to the dish. If you do this, the wine will bring out the spices and sweeten the flavor of the pairing. It’s magical. Cork and Java
