Albak Ribera del Júcar

 

TASTING NOTES:
This little wine is a tasty blend of Tempranillo, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, from Ribera del Jucar along the western edge of La Mancha.  It is dark in color, similar to Garnet, with aromas of tobacco, fresh cherry and a slight dried herb component.  It tends to be heavy on the palate with superb “fruity” sensations, such and black cherry,  and a robust spicy finish.  This wine would pair perfectly with a nice hearty beef stew, especially on a cool, crisp Autumn day!

ABOUT ELVI WINES:
Elvi Wines is a producer that makes wines from various regions in Spain. Albak, Furia and Adar come from the D.O. Ribera del Júcar. Ribera del Júcar is located in the province of Cuenca along the banks of the river Júcar and covers 7 municipalities. Grapes have been grown and wine produced in Ribera del Júcar for centuries but the D.O. status was only acquired in 2003, making the region the youngest D.O. in Spain. The creation of outstanding and great wines at a good price is their main objective. Their aim is to produce wines that bring together the producer and the consumer and that represent with authenticity the different Spanish areas, and peculiarity of the wines.

This wine isn’t expected to stay on the shelf long, so come get your bottle today!
