Medium bodied, rich and fruity, dry. Easy drinking.
Tasting Notes: An organic blend of Garnacha and Syrah from Carinena. A round, warming red with notes of sweet red cherries, plum, a touch of chocolate and subtle spice on the finish from the Syrah in the blend. Balanced, smooth and very easy to drink.
