Senorio de Barahonda Carro Tinto

Wine Description

(2012 Vintage) The 2012 Carro Tinto is terrific bargain in high-quality red wine from Spain, no doubt because it comes from the relatively remote and under-the-radar appellation of Yecla. A blend of 50% Monastrell (Mourvedre), 30% Syrah, 12% Merlot and 8% Tempranillo, it possesses spice and earthy, new saddle leather notes intermixed with notions of cherry jam, truffles and loamy soil. Ripe, full-bodied, rich and generously endowed with no hard edges, Mourvedre grown in Yecla can range from surprisingly rich and fleshy (as is this wine), to rustic and almost undrinkably astringent.
