Castillo de Fuendejalon Campo de Borja Crianza 2013

Blended Red from Spain
Review Date : 08-Aug-2016
Full, dark, deep ruby red colour, a little lighter on edge. The nose is rounded with aromas of savoury red berry fruits subtly interwoven with layers of dried herbs, game, leather and cedary notes, This is beginning to how some secondary development. Medium-bodied, the fuit flavours are reserved, with secondary flavours of savoury red berry fruits entwined with dried herbs, earth, leather, game and cedar. The fruit has sweetness, but is underlined by dry, grainy tannin extraction and grip, with a fine line of crisp acidity. The wine carries positively to a firm, sinewy, dry finish of savoury fruit, leather and cedar. This Campo de Borja Crianza is developing secondary flavours with a dry, sinewy texture. Match with slow cooked game meat and casseroles over the next 3 years. From Bodegas Aragonesas. A blend of Garnacha and Tempranillo, vines 30 y.o. and 20 y.o. respectively fermented to 13.0% alc., the wine aged 6 months in American oak. 16.5/20 Aug 2016 RRP $22.99
