Finca Antigua Crianza is composed of 50% Tempranillo, 20% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Syrah. Grapes are harvested during the months of September and October and then fermented in stainless steel tanks for 12 days before being aged in oak barrels for 14 months. They show a rounder, fuller, more modern version of this true Spanish classic.

Tasting Notes

The combination of Tempranillo, Merlot, Cabernet and Syrah give this wine unique aromas of stewed fruits, leather, tobacco, and hints of blueberry. These luscious aromas are underscored by integrated alcohol, smooth, but present, tannins, and pleasing acidity.

Food Pairing

Pair this wine with cured ham, Paella Morisco, and migas with lamb cutlets.
