Steve Milles Selections (SMS Wine)
With a vivacious nose of blackberries, blueberries and boysenberries, this is bright, fruity and full. Easy to enjoy, and not as warm or lofty in alcohol levels as some Cariñena wines. Drink soon or over the next few years.
The grapes for this wine are sourced from a vineyard at an altitude between 1,050 and 2,790 feet from vines that average 40 years in age. The upper areas of the vineyard have poor soil over rocks; on the lower levels, the soils are mainly brownish-limestone or brownish-red settled on top of stony ground.
