2019 Bodegas San Valero Garnacha Carinena Plano Alto

Regular price $15.98

In the Aragón region of Spain, you have Bodegas San Valero which is not only a winery but a group comprising 500 winegrowers and 700 partners established in 1944. Bodegas San Valero has a rich history in the region as the first winery in Aragón—and the second in Spain to build a bottling plant, in 1962, marking the transition from inexpensive wines bulk to top quality wines. Though you may be familiar with Garnacha, Cariñena on the other hand may be less familiar. Chances are you know it well, Cariñena is the name of the region but also a dark red grape variety native to Aragón, but also known in France as Carignan. Garnacha and Cariñena are usually blended together, producing a boldly structured wine. Don’t be intimidated by this blend which usually yields a high alcohol level but it’s bursting with flavor.

This 2019 Bodegas San Valero Garnacha Cariñena on the nose is filled with black raspberries, sweet spices, blueberries, wild cherries, and fresh flowers. The palate is filled with fresh red berries, spices and so much more. This is a wine you have to experience and is a steal at the price. 

92 IWR - The 2019 Plano Alto is fresh and inviting, as it opens to aromatics of black raspberries, wild cherries, pomegranate, sweet spices and fresh flowers which all jump from the glass. On the palate this is vibrant with fresh red berries, florals and spices. This is accessible today, but should continue to develop nicely over the next 2-3 years.

Shipping Policy

Open tab
  • Unless your delivery address is on the West Coast, we strongly discourage you from selecting “Ground Service” as your shipping method. During the winter and summer months, weather conditions (temperature) and longer delivery times can often result in the spoilage of your order. It doesn’t make sense to invest in fine wines and then take the chance of ruining them due environmental factors during transit (faster and safer delivery generally isn’t much more expensive). We don’t make an additional profit on accelerated delivery, but we frequently recommend faster shipping options to our customers outside the West Coast.
  • You must be 21 years of age to order or receive alcoholic beverages.  Any shipments containing alcoholic beverages are sent with an “Adult Signature Required” sticker, and the common carrier that delivers our merchandise is required to ask and check for identification upon delivery. This means that an adult will have to be present at the time of delivery.  Please consider shipping to an office address.
  • During periods of extreme weather, we attempt to ship wines at the beginning of each week in order to get shipments to you before the weekend. This is because we have no control over the temperature conditions at our freight carriers’ warehouses. The result may be that your shipment doesn’t go out the day that you place an order.
  • We ship by Fedex or Fedex Ground. Our prices include packaging materials. Insurance may be available for an additional charge.
  • Vintage Wine Merchants, Inc. will arrange for shipment on behalf of the buyer, to an address specified by the buyer, provided that Vintage Wine Merchants, Inc. in its sole judgment believes that such shipment will not subject Vintage Wine Merchants, Inc. to the risk of any sort of legal action or other harm. If a buyer lives in a state where the direct shipment of wine by Vintage Wine Merchants, Inc. violates the law, we suggest that the buyer provide an alternative address in another state or have their wine shipped to a third-party storage facility in a direct shipping-friendly state.
  • Various states impose limitations on the quantity of alcoholic beverages that may be purchased and brought into their jurisdiction by a purchaser from another state without requiring the purchaser, a seller or shipper to possess certain licenses or permits. Vintage Wine Merchants, Inc. does not, as a condition of sale, assume any obligation nor bear any responsibility whatsoever for applying or obtaining any permits or licenses. Therefore, we recommend that you investigate the possibility of such limitations, and determine the manner in which alcoholic beverages shall be brought into your state from California, so as to comply with all of your state’s requirements.
  • Wine shipping rules in the United States are controlled by the state you live in. We do not ship wine to the following states at this time:
