Cariñena is a rough grape from a broken home with many problems, mostly used for blending, ubiquitously grown around the Mediterrannean where it basks in the dry climate. When cultivated under trying conditions to poor soils, it produces robust wines of high alcohol potential, rich pigment and extract. Two weeks skin contact and aged for six months in a mix of American and French oak barrels.
Deep ruby colour with a hint of ochre. Rich complex Mediterranean aromas with exuberant notes of blackberry and spice. The fruit flavours are ample and generous, offering an engaging complexity as they develop into savoury, herbaceous characters.
