About

91

"A custom cuvee made for importer Eric Solomon with Jean-Marc Lafage, the 2016 Alcaria is a blend of 50% Monastrell, 25% Syrah, & the balance Garnacha, brought up in a mix of French & American oak barrels. An incredible value that more than over-delivers, this deeply colored red boasts terrific notes of ripe black fruits, chocolate, smoked herbs, & graphite. With full-boded richness & a sexy, opulent style on the palate, it opens up nicely in the & and should keep for 2-4 years".
