Caballo Oscuro Reserva 2016 - A Legacy of the Ebro Valley
Embrace the richness of time with the Caballo Oscuro Reserva, a dry red wine that stands as a monument to the age-old traditions of Spanish winemaking. This Reserva is a harmonious composition, a reflection of the patient transformation of Garnacha grapes under the tempering influence of American oak.
Rooted in History: Tracing the lifeblood of northeast Spain, the Ebro river weaves through the heart of the nation's most illustrious wine-growing regions. This journey, which begins in the shadow of Rioja and unfolds through the diverse terroirs of Navarra, Campo de Borja, Calatayud, Cariñena, and down to the sun-kissed Mediterranean shores, has fostered vines that give birth to wines with stories to tell.
Evolution in a Bottle: The 2017 vintage captures the maturity of Garnacha, a varietal that deepens in character and complexity with time. Extended aging in American oak barrels bestows upon this Reserva a spectrum of sophisticated notes - from the spice of ancient markets to the subtle smokiness of a distant flame, creating a profile that intrigues and enchants.
Sensory Journey: This Reserva showcases the layered transformation of Garnacha, starting with a nose rich in cooked fruits that segues into a garden of mint and herbs, finally culminating in a gentle waft of smoke. The palate is a testament to balance: a soft, fruity entry, bolstered by a lively acidity and a robust structure, all converging into a long, commanding finish.
A Toast to Time: With an alcohol content of 14.5%, the Caballo Oscuro Reserva is a bold yet graceful companion to a myriad of culinary experiences, or a poignant pleasure when savored on its own. It's not just a wine; it's an odyssey that pays homage to the enduring spirit of Garnacha and the timeless craft of the winemaker's barrel.
