Los Dos Red

The soft berry flavor of old-vine Garnacha from the Campo de Borja DO in Northeastern Spain elegantly expresses the characteristics of the varietal.  Located between the Sierra de Moncayo mountain range and the Ebro River Valley, this historic region has produced wine since the late 12th century. The continental climate is mitigated by the “cierzo” wind that cools the vineyards nightly.

About the Vineyard

Garnacha vineyards with an age of 10-25 years varying in altitude from 1,200 to 2,400 feet. Small parcels of the Tabuenca, Borja, and Pozuelo Vineyards.

Tasting Notes

Earthy aromas of black cherry and cranberry with subtle smoky overtones. The palate shows flavors of juicy black rasperry and mulberry with hints of bramble and herb. The finish is long and mineral-tinged.

Food Pairing

Pairs with dishes like beef stew with root vegetables, braised short ribs, polenta, or even an aromatic Moroccan tagine. But it's also the perfect accompaniment to weeknight standbys like a juicy cheeseburger, or a pepperoni pizza.
