2016 Monasterio de las Viñas, DO Cariñena

 2016 Monasterio de las Viñas

This youthful wine is a blend of Garnacha and Tempranillo and is another of the selection of Spanish reds. It comes from the DO Cariñena, which is one of the oldest 'appellations' as it was established in 1932. The first French appellation contrôlée dates from 1936. The 2016 is quite herbal with considerable structure. It would benefit from another couple of years in bottle.
