Winemaker's Notes:

Bright purple in color. The primary dark berry aromas are complemented by licorice and dark chocolate. The wine is straightforward and a bit youthfully grapey, with sweet blackberry and cassis flavors, supple texture and a late candied floral quality. This became firmer with air but is in no way hard. Very easy to drink.
My Notes:

About Campos Reales:

Located around 110 miles southeast of Madrid, Bodega Campos Reales is situated in La Mancha region, the largest wine producing region in the world.

The calcareous (lime) clay soils, with their surface san and shingle deposits, are ideal for maximum water retention, an essential element in an area of scarce rainfall. Extremes of cold in winter and heat in summer: climactic conditions that are ideal for producing excellent quality grapes.

A wide variety of grapes can be found in our vineyards. Amongst the reds are Tempranillo, Garnacha, Tintorera, Cabernet, Syrah, Monastrell, Moravia, Merlot, and Bobal. Whites that thrive here are: Airen, Macabeo, Chardonnay, and Sauvignon Blanc.
