Produced by Bodegas Canopy, this robust, smooth, juicy red wine is made with Garnacha grapes and aged for five months in French oak barrels. Lots of layers of luscious fleshy ripe black and purple plums and blueberries. Finishes with a lick of spice. Perfect for pizza night or hamburgers.

Reviews and Ratings

An elegant cherry color with ruby highlights and dense little stained tears. Aromas of red fruits, with a background of floral notes and hints of herbs, such as thyme and manzanilla. Castillo Belarfonso 2014 Méntrida is captivating and friendly, with an elegant fruity taste accompanied cocoa, licorice and little pepper. The drink is nice and long, with a well focused retronasal effect, revealing flowers and herbs on the nose .
