Bodegas Señorío de Barahonda 'Carro' 2012 Vinho Tinto, Yecla (Spain), $8.99-$12.99, 87+ points, pored core black quickly grading pomegranate red toward the thin transparent wine ring and moderately leggy glass bowl.
The wild mulberry aroma evolved into a softer evergreen potpourri with a hint of brine.
Medium-plus body with good acidity and a supportive underlayment of tannin carried lively flavors of mulberry, tart pomegranate, and a bit of toasty plum.
Finished fair on the trailing palate (quite stable over hours), easy warm spices, and a hefty 14% alcohol.
Excellent red table wine; paired perfectly with my cheese enchiladas and chili relleno.
Varietals were 50% Monastrell (Mourvèdre), 30% Syrah, 12% Merlot and 8% Tempranillo.
