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!
