Azul y Garanza- 2011/12

Great wine, made by the loveliest people! 60% Merlot and 40% Cabernet Sauvignon are aged in oak for ten months in this succulent, appealing red that has smoky notes over the vibrant violet and plum fruits. Bound to be loved by everyone, the challenge will be making sure you've got plenty in stock!

'Ripe blackberries and leafy herbal notes finishing with dark molasses and liquorice flavours. Palate shows rich, ripe fruits with a long, dense finish and smooth, fine tannins. Very ambitious style, which is very good. Drink 2014-2020' 90 Points, Decanter Magazine February 2014 (2011 vintage)

'Powerful cherry and dark berry scents are enlived by a bright mineral nuance. Tangy and precise on entry, then fleshier in the middle, offering blackcurrant and bitter cherry flavors and a hint of cracked pepper. Closes with firm tannic grip, an echo of black pepper and very good persistence. Shows the darker side of Navarra - and built to age.' 91 points, Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar September 2013 (2011 vintage)

Bodegas Azul y Garanza

This bodega is located in the small town of Carcastillo, to the east of Navarra. Poor soil and desert-like conditions mean low yields in the vineyard, and whilst many producers have abandoned the area, quality winemakers such as Dani Sanchez Nogué and María Barrena have invested here because of the quality they know is possible. Their premium red, Seis is a blend of cabernet sauvignon and merlot.
