2016 Tinto "Assemblage" (Forlong, Bodegas)

Bodega de Forlong, Tinto “Assemblage”, Cadiz, Andalucía, Spain 2016

{organic} 60% Merlot, 30% Tintilla de Rota, 10% Syrah (Amphora & oak aged)

DARK BERRIES, LIGHTLY PEPPERY, SUBTLE OAK, IRON & OCEANIC

This lush and approachable red is aged in terra-cotta amphorae and small oak barriques giving it Bordeaux-like flavors. It also, rightly, takes on the terroir of its origin. The Albariza soils of this vineyard give it a fine, spicy minerality, and its location so close to the sea imbues a saline/oceanic hint. It’s a delicious red that can only taste of this place!

Serving Suggestion: Hake cheek topped w/ pickled onions, & mint leaves. Rabbit croquettes. Spicy pork cracklins.
