Barahonda Barrica 2018
WE love the Ole Wine portfolio. Love it. They always overdeilver with Spanish wines, and this no different. This wine combines the powerful Monastrell grape with the spicy, soft tannins of Syrah.
Lurid ruby. Ripe black and blue fruits, cola, vanilla and potpourri on the deeply perfumed nose. Smooth and sweet on entry and then tighter in the midpalate, offering bitter cherry and blueberry flavors and hints of vanilla and spice cake. A smoky nuance emerges with aeration and carries through the long, gently tannic finish, which echoes the vanilla note.
