The 2015 Dehesa La Granja, Alejandro Fernández has a mature picota cherry red colour, with an intense garnet rim and covered in layers. This red wine has subtle notes of ripe black fruit jam, combined with delicate toasted notes, which meld perfectly with subtle hints of cocoa and some balsamic hints. The Dehesa La Granja is powerful in the mouth, flavourful, meaty and well structured. Endowed with ripe, sweet and high-quality tannins that give it breadth and volume and fill the palate. Bursting with the aromas of ripe fruit in the middle and integrated with the flavour of exquisite wood. The Alejandro Fernández Dehesa La Granja has a long persistent finish, marked by hints of liquor-infused cherries.
If there’s one characteristic that differentiates Dehesa de la Granja from any other red wine, it’s the fact that it has been aged in the extensive caves of the cellar dug out of stone in the 18th century, just under the modern production facilities.
The 2015 Alejandro Fernández Dehesa La Granja is a perfect accompaniment to red meat, such as veal tenderloin with mustard in red wine. It also goes perfectly with feathered game dishes such as stewed squab with mushrooms and truffles or duck with blueberry sauce.
