    With a hot, dry climate and heavy, late rainfall, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grapes thrive in Spain’s La Mancha region. With supple tannins, moderate acidity, juicy fruit notes, and chocolate spice flavors, the Finca Antigua Crianza Merlot 2019 is among the best Spanish red wines. This wine is bright and crystalline with intense floral and toasted aromas. It boasts cherry red colors, violet hues, and a well-structured body. On the palate, you’ll enjoy rounded plum notes, vibrant red fruit, chocolate, and spice cake. After harvest, the merlot grapes are quickly pressed and fermented in steel tanks to preserve the wine’s freshness. It is then aged in French oak for eleven months, providing those rich, spice undertones. Pair this juicy, robust merlot with steaks, burgers, barbecue, grilled vegetables, and pasta with meaty red sauce. Serve slightly chilled, just below room temperature, to bring out those subtle fruit and floral aromas.
