Spain is a hotbed of red wine values from
emerging regions; this blend of four varieties
comes from a remote zone in the southwest.
What You Need To Know
Spain’s wine revolution has created
thousands of new estates in the last three decades. They’ve
transformed well-established regions, such as Rioja, and
pioneered new winemaking zones. A case in point is Ribera del
Guadiana, a sprawling region along the Portuguese border that’s
part of the even larger-but still obscure-Extramadura zone.
Both wine districts are in their infancy, having been officially
recognized in 1999. Like many modern-style wineries in the
region, Carabal relies on both French and Spanish grapes. This
red combines French varieties (Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah)
with Spanish grapes (fragrant Graciano and spicy Tempranillo) to
create a polished, earthy blend.
Fragrant plum and orange
Spicy plum flavors define this
intense, smooth red.
Cellar temperature—the bottle should be
cool to the touch.
Earthy pork and
red meat dishes.
