Natalie's Score: 91/100

This full-bodied Spanish red wine was fermented in stainless steel; half of the wine was matured in small French oak barrels, of which about 40% new, and the remaining half in stainless steel tank. Loaded with mocha and sweet chocolate aromas on the nose that are then flooded with lusciously ripe black fruit on the palate. Full-bodied and smooth. A rich darkly hued colour in the glass.

Garnacha food pairings: veal, soft cheese, roast pork, lamb, turkey.

Terrific Turkey Wine

Reviews and Ratings

Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Tasted the 2012 vintage in 2015. Ruby red. Gamay sweet red berries and black berry perception. Enjoy with dried figs and antipasti. Aromas of mocha cocoa and black berry. Full body, well integrated profile, deep, dark and succulent.
This winery is located south of Rioja and is comprised of 100% Garnacha grapes. The Garnacha grapes for this wine grow on old vines, which provides additional concentration and flavour. Great structure. A long, satisfying finish. Pair with grilled meats. The 2012 vintage of the Tres Picos offers solid value. - Community Wine Reviews
