Alcohol/vol 15.5%
Very intense cherry red colour with tones of purple. Presents in the nose a great concentration of aromas of ripe red fruit with floral nuances. In the mouth it is a well structured rich wine that evokes tastes of blackberry, plum and tones of leather and vanilla, with a soft and silky tannin. Pair with barbecue, vegetables, beef and pork. Rice and pasta based dishes. Goes well with cheese and hearty meals, such as Chili, Shepard's Pie, and Lasagna.

The minty and balsamic 2016 Tres Picos Garnacha is difficult to identify as Garnacha. It matured in new French oak barrels for five months, which gives it a roasted and smoky character. It's very intense and might overpower food. It has abundant tannins and a dusty texture. A very oaky red in the end-of-the-1990s style.

Kirsch, candied orange and vanilla flavors are bold and sweet in this exuberant red. Light tannins and tangerine acidity keep this lively. Drink now through 2021.
