Tasting Notes

This award-winning red from Spain's Cariñena region is an inspired blend of Tempranillo, Garnacha and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes.

Smooth and concentrated, with ripe blackberry fruit flavours, together with a hint of vanilla.

Pairing with roasted red meats or a hearty stew suits this wine perfectly.
