Another wine from the Garnarcha Empire. I'm finding wines from Campo de Borja are becoming a bit of a favourite for me. They are consistently very good, intriguing wines that have bags of character and layers of flavour. This one is made from old vine Garnarcha and aged in a mix of American and French oak for 14 months.
A soft nose of earth, light spice, smoke and red berries. Silky smooth in the mouth with light tannins and good length. The flavours on the palate are the real show here, layers of flavour as the wine continually opens up. Chocolate, cola, clove, raspberry, cherry brandy, roast meat and wintergreen. Great now, I'd drink this over the next 3-5 years. 90 Pts
