The name CAIR is an amalgamation of the first two letters of two great friends’ surnames, Juan Luis Cañas and Juan José Iribecampos. After a long search they found the ideal vineyard to produce the grapes for the wine they conceived. The vineyards are between 800-900m above sea level, planted with 40 year old gnarled Tempranillo bush vines. The CAIR Crianza spends 14 months in 60% French and 40% American oak.
The CAIR Crianza is has a rich nose of fine wood, leather, cigar box, and dark fruit. On the palate the fruit continues with hints of dark chocolate combined with sweet tannins to produce a balanced, elegant red wine. Followed with a long, lingering finish.
