Winemaker's Notes:

This Syrah is dry and mineral, with hints of black pepper, ripe red fruits and licorice. On the palate, it is pleasant and persistent, with balanced tannins that open up in a broad finish.

About Bodegas Carchelo:

Bodegas Carchelo dates from the early 1980s and pioneering efforts to modernize viticulture in what had been a backwater viticultural region. Founding partner Juan Sierva's nearly 700 acres of prime vineyards are widely distributed in the region, at widely varying altitudes and exposures. Varieties grown feature Monastrell (in France Mourvèdre, both ungrafted head-pruned and wire-trained vineyards) plus Syrah, Tempranillo, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.
