Funny how things work. Yesterday we wrote about 'Queso de Cabra' and today it just happens that our new under $10.00 red wine pick Carro Tinto 2004 from Bodegas Antonio Candela comes from the same area
of Murcia, Spain.
It is 50% Monastrell, 20% Syrah, 20% Tempranillo and 10% Merlot.
Because of the dry climate of the area, the vineyards produces concentrated fruit.
The 4 grapes in this wine offers a balance between full flavors and rich fruit. Carro Tinto complemented nicely a few cheeses, crusty bread and a pear I chose to have with it.
