|Kimberly Inksater - Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
Sweet dark berry, spice , oak and boozy aromas resulting from this old vine, low yield wine. This garnacha (Grenache) is oh so smoot, balancedh, and full bodied. Another great Spanish wine for good value. 15% alcohol. I paired this with 4 year old cheddar. Mmmm.
|Andrew Bernardo rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
A perennial favourite featuring black and red briar, plum skin, cigar tobacco, warm spice and a touch of herb. There is some pepper here as well as pronounced crushed rock on the finish. 91 Points. (www.ottawawinejournal.com)
|Colin McKone - Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Made from 100% Spanish garnacha grapes, this wine is dark ruby in colour with aromas of plum, raspberry, tobacco, strawberry jam, mint, dark chocolate and vanilla. The alcohol, acidity and tannins are well balanced. It is full bodied with lots of raspberry, leather and dark chocolate flavour and has a long finish. This will pair well with grilled red meats and strong firm cheeses.
|Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
An appetizing nose of dark cherries and vanilla. Bright fruity palate gives lots of dark berries, plums, vanilla, mocha and leather. Dry with great acidity and a long dark berry finish. Yum!
|Sharon Prionas rated this wine as 85/100 with the following review:|
Ripe fruit and leather with hints of smoke. Strong tannin pull, smooth and spicy, packing a punch at 15%.
|Emilie Ryan rated this wine as 84/100 with the following review:|
Like drinking raspberry jam…
Presentation: Clean, minimalist, yet fun and artistic
Appearance: Medium-to-dark ruby
Nose: Red fruit (cherries, strawberries), vanilla, oak
Taste: Dry-to-off dry, high tannins, high acidity, full bodied, with notes of sour cherries, raspberry jam, leather, earth, toastiness
Finish: medium cherry and alcohol finish
Overall impression: A fruit forward wine, like drinking raspberry jam, but with noticeable alcohol. Would go well with strong flavoured foods like old or blue cheese and grilled meats
|This old vine Garnacha is made from vineyards that cling to the rugged terrain of the slopes of the Moncayo mountain. Low yields of two tons per acre concentrate the flavour of the grapes. This winery is located south of Rioja and is comprised of 100% Garnacha grapes. The Garnacha grapes for this wine grow on old vines, which provides additional concentration and flavour. This full-bodied Spanish red wine was fermented in stainless steel; half of the wine was matured in small French oak barrels, of which about 40% new, and the remaining half in stainless steel tank. - Community Wine Reviews|
