Carchelo C 2014
Wine EnthusiastSpicy, toasty black-fruit aromas set up a firm palate with wrenching tannic grip. Spicy flavors of dark plum and blackberry are typical of this type of Monastrell blend. Peppery notes and herbal accents are up front on the finish.
Wine SpectatorMeaty and gamy notes shadow plum and sanguine flavors in this savory red, which has firm tannins and balsamic acidity. Rather austere but harmonious. Drink now through 2018. 25,000 cases made.
