Solanera (a red wine from Spain)

This is a very good Spanish wine. It is a little potent-14.5 alc. "This special limited production wine is an example of the high quality potential of the emerging Yecia region in Southern Spain. Solanera is produced from the oldest vines of the indigenous Monastrell variety (65 %) along with low yielding Cabernet Sauvignon (20 %) Tintorera (15 %) which is aged in oak for 10 months. The resulting wine is deeply colored, with the ripe, rich flavors of the Mediterranean." "This wine is a custom blend for Eric Solomon and is bottled unfiltered and unfined." It was imported by European Cellars, LLC Charlotte, NC.

This was a wondrful smooth wine.
