Cuevas de Arom Pedra Forca 2016

The third wine from the Bodegas Frontonio wine tasting at Madrid & Darracott and our first red wine if the night. It is one if Frontonio’s newest wine from land recently obtained in the D.O. Campo De Borja. All the Borja wines are made underground in a cave (la cueva de Arom) and have names in the old Aragonese language of Fabla. Pedra Forca comes from the words for rock and pitchfork.

The D.O. Campo de Borja known for Woody garnachas full on cherry. I love cherry flavoured reds so will have to explore this region more

This particular wine is a young Garnacha red with a bit of Syrah, which is going against the trend for this region.

It has a medium light purple colour with a fairly pronounced scent full of fruity berries. Cherry is definitely in there but mixed with other red berries.

This is a lovely young fun fruity red my favourite type. Dry, light body, medium finish, low tannins and good acidity. It’s a cherry bomb which I adore. I didn’t get much of the Syrah except perhaps a hint of spice in the finish.
