Wine: What happens when a world acclaimed winemaker is seeking a new challenge? Well, we will give you a hint.. you get an amazing new wine from one of Spain's most famous wine regions, Rioja. Carlos Moro previously created award winning wines from Spain's various well known wine regions but never had a project in the “Spanish wine Meca” called Rioja. That was until his new baby CM Crianza came along, which is Carlos Moro’s first Rioja wine labelled under his name. This is an awesome full body Rioja made from 100% Tempranillo. The wine is aged for 12 months in French and American oak barrels for structure and balance. We refer to this wine as liquid velvet as it is incredibly smooth. So the moral of this story is follow your passion and dreams, especially if they taste this good ;-).
