WineDiva's Review

Engaging, bright, aromatic
The Santo Cristo co-operative is a winery with vineyards around the village of Ainzon in the heart of the Camp de Borja DO. Vines have been cultivated there since the Middle Ages, they belonged to the nearby large monastery of Veruela. The Santo Cristo co-op was founded in 1956, and is now one of the most modern in Spain.
As is typical, joven (young) wines are made to be fresh, they see no oak and are meant to be consumed early. This one, made from old vine (around 40-years) Garnacha is expressive with Kirsch and licorice, vanilla, candied roses, baking spices and white pepper aromas. The palate echoes the nose; licorice, cherry cola, fine spices, pipe tobacco and leather. Engaging and bright with a cocoa finish.

Recommended Pairings
Barbeque, Cheese - Semi Hard / Medium , Tomatoes and Tomato Sauces
