Winemaker's Notes:

The wine has a bright scarlet colour with ripe, red fruit aromas. On the palate it has freshness with good length and balance with warmth and structure; the tannins are smooth and elegant. Made from Monastrell, Syrah and Merlot grapes harvested at optimum ripeness.

There are 6,000 cases of the 2004 Carro, a tank-fermented and aged, un-oaked blend of 50% Mourverde, 20% Syrah, 20% Tempranillo, and 10% Merlot. It reveals terrific fruit intensity, copious black cherries and wild mountain berries, and notions of licorice, flowers, roasted meats, and chocolate. With supple tannin, low acidity, and abundant fruit, it is a joy to drink as well as a spectacular value. Consume it over the next 12ndash;18 months. This estate is one of the top discoveries of all my tastings.

The 2008 Nabuko is composed of 50% Monastrell and 50% Syrah aged for three months in French oak. Purple-colored, it reveals a fragrant nose of smoke, underbrush, blueberry, and blackberry jam. On the palate spice notes and black licorice emerge along with layers of savory blue fruit. Well balanced and lengthy, this seamless effort can be enjoyed over the next four years.

Vivid red. Complex nose displays red and dark berries, graphite and fresh violet. Fresh black raspberry and blueberry flavors stain the palate and are braced by zesty minerality. Clean, focused and sweet on the finish, where suave Asian spices come up to complement the berry fruit. Extremely easy to drink, with no rough edges or apparent tannins.

This Spanish red is bursting with sweet red fruit. It is ripe and delicious. An everyday wine that wonrsquo;t break the bank.

Ruby-red. Spicy, floral aromas of bright cherry and rhubarb, complicated by minerals and pepper. Fresh red berry fruit shows very good energy and precision, with a light mineral touch on the back. This boasts impressive focus and complexity for the price.

Deep violet. Fresh red and dark berry aromas and flavors are complemented by notes of dried rose and cracked pepper. Begins rather light but gains weight with air and finishes with good persistence and a slightly bitter edge.

The 2008 Carro is 50% Monastrell, 20% Syrah, 20% Tempranillo, and 10% Merlot fermented and aged in stainless steel. Purple-colored, it reveals a fragrant bouquet, of violets, damp earth, incense, and blueberry. On the palate it has surprising grip and concentration for its humble price and a lengthy, fruit-filled finish. It will provide pleasure over the next three years.
