Senorio de Barahonda 2014 Barrica
75% Monastrell, 25% Syrah | Alc: 14.5% – Big and Bold
A big, thick, juicy, dense purple-colored effort, it reveals lots of blackberry and cassis fruit intermixed with hints of camphor, licorice and spicy oak. This medium to full-bodied, luscious, fruity, crowd-pleaser should keep for 3-4 years.
“The outstanding 2012 Barahonda Barrica (75% Monastrell and 25% Syrah aged six months in French oak) exhibits a dense ruby/purple color as well as copious notes of blackberries, licorice, camphor, white flowers and pepper. This ripe, medium-bodied, opulent, fleshy red should drink well for several years. It’s a real winner at this price point” 91 Pts – The Wine Advocate
