2018 Bodega Barahonda, Carro, Yecla, Spain
Grapes: 50% Monastrell, 20% Syrah, 20% Merlot, 10% Tempranillo
Carro is 100% unoaked and made with organically grown grapes. Aromas of cherry and licorice are complemented by a suggestion of dark chocolate, and a smoky nuance emerges slowly. Spice-tinged red and blue fruit flavors show very good depth as well as vivacity thanks to a spine of juicy acidity. Finishes quite long, with lingering spiciness, gentle tannins and an echo of sweet red fruit.
