Bodegas Carchelo dates from the early 1980's and pioneering efforts to modernize viticulture in what had been a backwater viticultural region. Founding partner Juan Sierva's nearly 700 acres of prime vineyards are widely distributed in the region, at widely varying altitudes and exposures.

Reviews:
Stephen Tanzer: Inky ruby. Deeply pitched aromas of blackberry, cherry and plum. Sweet, pungent and ripe, showing strong smoke, mocha, dark berry preserve and herbal flavors on the palate. A supple, rich wine that betrays no tannins or rough edges and finishes with good sappy length.

Decanter: A blend of Monastrell, Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon displaying lively blackberries and spice. Rich and powerful on the palate supported by freshness and elegance and some juicy black fruit characters. A very enjoyable wine. *5 Stars - Top 10 Picnic Wines.

Varietals:

40% Monastrell: La Pinosa Estate
Conveys structure and concentration, while sturdy tannins provide length to the finish.

40% Syrah: Fuente de Las Perdices Valley
Opens up in aromatic exuberance, vitality and expression.

20% Cabernet Sauvignon: La Pinosa Estate
Its delicate aroma imparts superb finesse and balance to this blend.

All three have been separately aged for 2 months in French oak barrels. 

Elaborated separately, these three varieties come together to shape a well structured, concentrated and intensely aromatic blend.

Tasting Notes:

Color: Intense and full purple red color.
Aroma: Expressive, richness in fruit, blackberries, modern fruit driven.
Palate: Good structure, mouth filling, powerful, black fruit and spiciness from Syrah, juicy and fresh. Easy to drink.more

Although the 2009 vintage has not yet been rated the previous vintage received 90 points from Wine Spectator.  This score is quite good for a quality low-priced wine making this an excellent bargain.

Located on the Northeastern tip of the South Island of New Zealand, Marlborough is marked by its cool weather as well as its shallow stony soils that aid drainage and limit fertility. We've chosen the most renowned grape of New Zealand to make our decadent and flavorful Cupcake Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc.

Wine Maker's Notes:
The 2009 season was quite mild, with a minimal amount of rain. Large yields were pruned back to help concentrate the flavors of this wine. It's the long cool season that allows the grapes to mature slowly, giving them levels of complexity and a vibrant zing, reminiscent of your grandma's lemon chiffon cupcake. It's made up of integrated flavors of Meyer lemons, Key limes and a finish that awakens the appetite.

Our 2009 Sauvignon Blanc was harvested and gently crushed. After a cool fermentation in stainless steel tanks, the wine underwent a long extended rest sur lies to embolden the richness in the body and softness on the mid palate, complimenting the natural zestiness and acidic structure of these Marlborough grapes. This year's vintage has hints of grapefruit, gooseberry, and citrus, and comes together with a long, creamy finish.more
