Heavy plum & tobacco. Hits of currant, vanilla, and oak. Mild tannins. Great with fatty meats.

Slightly sweet but not overly. Notes of maple and plum. Great with our cast iron pizza (peperoni, moz, onion, and arugala).

Red fruits. Raspberry, red currant, pommagranite. Cedar and fresh oak, zero vanilla. Touch of yellow bell pepper (that one that u can't quite understand) White pepper hiding on the finish. Fine tannins, but a little wood tannin remains on the teeth and drying. 91pts -DRUMS

This 2012 #carinena blend Reserva is wonderful. It does open up after almost an hour but is fruit-forward with a touch of the regional Spanish bell pepper notes. I agree with another reviewer, it does pair well with pizza.
