86% Carignan, 7% Cabernet, 7% Graciano

A powerful nose filled with muddled strawberries, tamarind, rose petals, and cardamom introduce the 2019 Sacred Burro. Dry-cured chorizo, scorched earth, ripe plum, wild mint and forest floor are the hallmark flavors of this savory beauty. The texture is velvety and dense with great length and a surprising liveliness to the finish.
