Aragones, which most know well as Tempranillo, enhances the berry/cherry flavors and the soft texture. Castelao, known by some as Periquita, brings a youthful fresh fruitiness. And Alicante-Bouschet offers its trademark deep purple color and some additional softness. Perfect with braised lamb (or goat) shanks, or broiled garlic steak.
