The grapes for this Karman Tinto grow in a cooler climate area of Rioja. The Cárdenas river valley has red soils of clay and iron and the vines grow here at the foot of the Sierra de la Demanda mountains.A blend of Garnacha (88%), Tempranillo (12%) from old bush vines, the Karman is juicy and unoaked. It has bright and ripe wild berry fruits with black pepper notes. There is softness from four months spent on lees and supple tannins for structure. Lovely with spanish rice, pork and chicken dishes.
