We just made another addition to our growing collection of Spanish wines. Carchelo is a rich blend of Tempranillo, Monastrell and Cabernet Sauvignon. It comes from the region of Jumilla along the Mediterranean coast near Alicante. First impressions on the nose are plum, raisin and a hint of fennel. The palate has a terrific balance of acidity and ripe, dark fruit and just enough tannin not to be flabby. I had it with a flank steak flavored with a soy and Worcestershire marinade. Excellent!
