National Spanish Paella Day Reds Half-Case
Your National Spanish Paella Day Reds Half-Case includes two bottles each of:
2015 El Miracle "Art" Red Blend - Spain
A bit Mediterranean in character, this dark purple wine greets you with an intense and smoky bouquet, followed by expressive flavors of red fruits, and hints of minerality, all bound together with good acidity and defined tannins.
Multiple Award Winner: 94-point Platinum Medal, Best Red Blend, 2017 Monterey International Wine Competition; Bronze Medal, 2017 International Eastern Wine Competition
2014 Nebla Old Vine Garnacha - Spain
Known as Grenache in France, Garnacha wine originated in Spain, where it is sought out for its juicy and smooth profile. 2014 Nebla Old Vine Garnacha was grown on 35-year-old vines in Valencia. Aromas of red fruits and notes of smoke and cedar begin on the nose and are joined on the palate by fleshy plum and a hint of black olive, leading into a long, berry-laden finish. We love this resolutely Mediterranean wine with paella and roasted meats.
2015 Tremo Maceracion Carbonica Tempranillo - Rioja, Spain
Carbonic Maceration is a cutting edge winemaking method where a carbon dioxide rich environment is used to ferment juice inside the grape. This results in very fruity wines with very little mouth-drying tannins. While most popular in France, Bodega Luis Alegre is using Carbonic Maceration in Spain on masterfully grown Tempranillo and Viura grapes for a juicy wine with an aromatic nose of raspberry, cherry and slight violet notes. Soft acidity provides just enough balance for fresh fruit notes that meet licorice on the finish.
