Caballo Oscuro Reserva 2016 – Dry Red Wine
Over time the fresh fruit flavours of Garnacha become richer and with a longer ageing in American oak, a deeper complexity is added, with hints of spices and a certain smokiness.
The Ebro is the major river in the north-east of Spain and the largest river in Spain to run into the Mediterranean. Along its length there are many wine growing regions, , starting with the region of Rioja below the city of Logroño. From there it flows through the lower part of Navarra and then on past Campo de Borja, Calatayud and Cariñena… way on down towards the Priorat, Tarragona and to the sea.
Tasting Notes of Caballo Oscuro Reserva 2016: The cooked fruitiness of an aged Garnacha dominates, with notes of mint, herbs and smoke from the ageing. The palate is fruity and soft, but with a good acidity and a powerful structure to give a long finish.
