This bold, but also straightforward Spanish red wine is produced by Bodegas Inurrieta.
A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Graciano, complemented with 14% Syrah, Inurrieta Cuatrocientos is made from vineyards located at 400 metres above sea level. The area is defined by strong winds and great temperature differences between daytime and nighttime. This allow the grapes to ripen steadily, thus maximizing their aromatic qualities.
After a traditional vinification, this wine of the DO Navarra was aged for 14 months in French oak barrels from Allier and American oak barrels.
The wine Inurrieta Cuatrocientos 2017 should be aerated 30 minutes before drinking.
The red wine Inurrieta Cuatrocientos Crianza has a cherry colour with a ruby rim.
The nose of this Crianza red wine from Bodegas Inurrieta suggests aromas of red berries, clove, laurel, sweet spices, leather and some balsamic nuances.
This pleasant red wine from Navarra is fresh and well-balanced. Lively acidity, ripe tannins and yummy remembrances of red and black fruit. Long finish.
