This Spanish Garnacha red blend is another great value from the Superstar Spanish wine importer, Jorge Ordonez, who brought Can Blau, el Nido and Clio wines to the U.S.
From the Northern town of D.O. Monstant, near Priorat, this wine has very concentrated black fruit flavors and overtones of crushed stone. Zerran Tinto is made from Syrah, very old Garnacha vines and Carignan (aka Mazuelo) and aged 16 months in French oak.
The D.O. Montsant region is made up of mountainous terrain with high altitude vineyards situated between 50 to 700 meters above sea level, and known for old-vine (expressive fruit) Garnacha and Carignan blends.
