Super Spanish Stunner is our Wine of the Month!
Campo de Borja D.O. is located in the Aragon region, nestled against the Pyrenées Mountains. The hillsides of the Moncayo shelter the vineyards located between 350 and 800 metres of altitude, regulating cold, heat and moderating the effects of the North-west 'Cierzo', or wind. This region is historically and geographically conducive to growing Garnacha, which makes up 60% of the vineyards. Other varietals include, Syrah, Tempranillo, Cabernet Sauvignon, and minimal amounts of Mazuela, Macabeo, and Chardonnay.
This particular blend is made up of mostly Grenache, Syrah and a small percentage of Mazuela. It is yet another spectacular Spanish value not to be missed.
From Wine Spectator: Full-bodied, yet fresh and lively, this red delivers bold flavors of cherry compote, dried fig, cocoa, toast and licorice. Light, firm tannins and citrusy acidity keep this focused. Garnacha, Syrah and Mazuelo. Drink now through 2026.
See you soon!
