Senorio de Barahonda Campo Arriba Yecla 2014

Winemaker's Notes:

93 points Robert Parker: The 2014 Campo Arriba comes from one of the highest elevations in Yecla and it's a blend of 70% Mourvèdre, 20% Syrah and 10% Grenache aged three months in small French oak. This winery, started in 1925 by the Candela family, has really hit pay day with this amazing value. Blackberries, blueberries, acacia flowers, and chalky minerality dominate the aromatics and flavors. It is full-bodied, the price is absurdly low for a wine of this quality, and I suspect it can age nicely for another 5-6 years, although its true value is its exuberance, fruit purity and density. Drink: 2016-2022. (Nov 2015)

I picked up this wine when my wife pointed it out to me (on sale, of course). From Bodegas Barahonda in Yecla, this blend of Monastrell, Syrah, and Garnacha Tintorera is dark cherry in colour with a nose of cedar bark, cola, mocha and black cherry. Entry is medium bodied, with relatively smooth black fruit flavours, light oak and a sweet cherry finish. Some acerbity, but otherwise pleasant. Great value. 89.
