Príncipe de Viana Garnacha Roble (2015) - "This garnet colored Garnacha opens with a ripe strawberry jam, pomegranate, eucalyptus and light oak bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, smooth and juicy with slightly tart black cherries flavors. I also detected some notes of plum as well. I enjoyed its light tannins and balanced acidity. The finish was extended with a pleasurable amount of dryness. I would recommend pairing this value priced Garnacha with beef Bolognese. "

Príncipe de Viana Garnacha Roble (2012) - "Bright violet color. Jammy red berry aromas, with peppery spices and a hint of vanilla adding complexity. Fleshy and sweet, with lively cherry-vanilla and raspberry preserve flavors that linger on the finish. This highly appealing fruit bomb is drinking nicely right now."

Overview: 1200 acres of old vines are managed under contract throughout the region. In 2003, over one thousand additional acres of estate vineyards were established on a rolling chalky-stony plateau at the confluence of the Aragón and Ebro Rivers. Primary grape varieties, sustainably grown, are Tempranillo, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Graciano and Garnacha. Soils are mainly chalky clay and alluvial deposit, the climate an intermittent interplay of Atlantic, Mediterranean and Continental. Persistent "Cierzo" winds responsible for the adjacent Bardenas Desert Natural Park effectively minimize plant disease.

History: Bodegas Príncipe de Viana was created in 1983 as a banner project of Caja Rural de Navarra, an agricultural lending institution founded to provide financial assistance for the sustainable development of Navarra's important farming sector. Reflecting wine's nobility among agricultural products, the project takes its name from an historic Navarran title of Spanish royal succession dating to 1423.
