2017 Basiano Tinto, Bodegas Campos De Enanzo, Navarra, Spain
85% Tempranillo & 15% Garnacha.
Deep cherry red, the nose shows plum and cherry
fruits and some spice. The palate is medium bodied with juicy rich red and dark fruits, some spice and supple tannins.
"Tempranillo is the most important red grape in Spain, a grape with many names Tinta del Pais, Cencibel, Ull de Llebre to name a few. In Navarra and neighbouring Rioja the wines have great complexity, richness yet freshness. The nose has a mix of red fruits bright, fragrant and fresh the palate is richer sweet and ripe depth of fruit in the middle. There is freshness towards the back a bramble and redcurrant mix but it finishes with sweetness and depth. Lamb is an important dish in Navarra a combination you will enjoy if it is on the menu."
