Las Barracas Gran Reserva

Cabernet | Tempranillo
2007

Catalunya

Perfectly mature Gran Reservas are Spain’s gift to wine lovers everywhere. These smooth beautities are only made in good vintages (like 2007) and only released at their delicious peaks after they’ve spent years mellowing in oak barrels and in the bottle. Wait until you taste this extra-special, complex find. It was make for you at the famed Ramon Roqueta’s bodega, one of the oldest cellars in all of Spain In fact, the Roquetas’ winemaking history goes all the way back to the Middle Ages.

60% Tempranillo ~ 40% Cabernet Sauvignon

*****
