SOLD OUT! For those of you who missed out on the great deal that was Bodegas Borsao Monte Oton Garnacha, the Don Ramon is another delicious Grenache-based wine from Campo de Borja.
Founded in 1984, Bodegas Aragonesas is a cooperative of small family farms and growers, and like Bodegas Borsao, their focus is on great quality at great prices.
2012 Bodegas Aragonesas Don Ramon Tinto
The quintessential red table wine!
This is not a wine that’s going to win any major awards or wine competitions, but it’s just plain delicious. From 50+ year old vineyards in the warm and dry Campo de Borja region of Spain, just south of Rioja and Navarra, it’s a blend of 75% Garnacha and 25% Tempranillo aged in American oak for 3 months. From the cool retro label to the super tasty juice inside of the bottle, this is a great one to have around the house for parties, cookouts and casual drinking.
It pours a nice ruby/crimson color and right off the bat, this smells like old school Spanish wine. Earthy, spicy cherry, strawberry and plum aromas lead into a soft, juicy and spicy palate of ripe fruit, gentle tannin, white pepper and just a kiss of toasty oak. There’s not much more to say about this one other than that you should buy at least a case!
