The combination of Tempranillo, Merlot, Cabernet and Syrah give this wine unique aromas of stewed fruits, leather, tobacco, and hints of blueberry. These luscious aromas are underscored by integrated alcohol, smooth, but present, tannins, and pleasing acidity.
Pair this wine with cured ham, Paella Morisco, and migas with lamb cutlets.
"The 2009 Finca Antigua Crianza is a blend of 50% Tempranillo, 20% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Syrah raised in French and American oak for 15 months. It has a pleasant bouquet of black cherries, fresh fig and Christmas cake that is well-defined, hints of licorice developing with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with succulent red fruit, well-judged acidity and a composed, sensual finish."
