Deep purple globes bunched very close together with a lovely bloom
Juicy and soft, only the slightest bit gelatinous but it has seeds
Sweet and deeply complex with layers of spicy grape flavor
OVERALL Overall Rating:
This is clearly a grape that goes in to wine. In fact, I’ve been eating them and pretending to stumble around the house buzzed and delirious, then “passing out” right before I am supposed to do housework. It’s working like a charm – stop judging me. But back to the Carignan Black — it is complicated, juicy and wonderful. It has those pesky seeds, but the flavor here compared to regular grocery store grapes is worth the extra bit of work. A definite favorite.
