Aragón Wine

 

This region, rich in history, was once the home of celebrated 16th century royals Ferdinand and Isabella and their daughter, Catherine of Aragon, maligned first wife of England’s King Henry VIII. Aragon is spread between the Pyrenees at the French border to the central Iberian plateau. Because the climate ranges from cool, mountainous conditions to warmer climates in lower elevations, many different styles of grapes are grown.
 
It is home to four D.O.’s: 
 
Somontano at the foot of the Pyrenees makes well received whites, reds and rosados with a far range of varietals grown, such as Tinto del Pais (Tempranillo), Garnacha, Macabeo as well as many other classic French grapes such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah. 
 
Cariñena is named after the grape, which had been the main planting until the popularity of Garnacha took over. Other red grapes grown include Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah and its most popular white is Viura. Juicy Read more »

  • Viñas del Vero Tinto Somontano 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Raspberry, herbs, and some rusty, dusty mineral notes emerge on the nose along with some gamy hints and a nuance of burnt brownie and herb. A touch of trapped CO2 adds a prickle on the tongue, though when its released this is clear, light and transparent in the mouth. There;s a nice acid edge blending tartness to the raspberry and wild cherry fl... Read More

  • Tres Picos /11 Garnacha 2010

    Snoothrank:

    For me this was a very drinkable wine. Rich red color and light on tannins. Had some blackberry and raspberry notes. I didn't pick up the ashy notes others mentioned, but that could be because I was smoking a cigar with the wine. All in all I would drink this wine again. Read More

  • Castillo de Monseran Old Vines Garnacha 2010

    Snoothrank:

    The nose was ripe, yet characterful, showing dark fruit, ripe strawberry, mint, and a hint of oak. On the palate, it was rich and deeply rooted in brambly, earthy fruit with blackberry, currant, hints of stem and minerals. The texture was full yet grainy with tannin that tugged at your already black-fruit saturated palate. A solid vein of acidit... Read More

  • Monte Ducay Reserva Cariñena 2009

    Snoothrank:

    This wine has 13.0% alcohol and the bottle is sealed with a natural cork. Per Greg this is only$7 but appears to be available only at Trader Joes. If you see this wine at that price, grab a case, you won't be sorry. The wine is a medium to deep ruby red color. The enticing nose has black cherries, raspberries, minerals, baking spices, cedar, ... Read More
