This reserve wine Altos de Inurrieta 2008 is full-bodied with a good soul, produced by the Inurrieta winery in the Navarra region of Spain. This wine is crafted from a blend of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon that have been cultivated between 1,500 to 1,600 feet of altitude (400-450 Meters) on slightly sloped landed that contain stone filled soils. This environment concentrates a world of flavors into these grapes that always result in well-balanced and very expressive wines.
