Natalie's Score: 92/100

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. Great structure. Lots of mocha and dark chocolate aromas on the nose that are then flooded with lusciously ripe black fruit on the palate. Full-bodied and smooth. A rich darkly hued colour in the glass. A long, satisfying finish. Pair with grilled meats. The 2013 vintage of the Tres Picos offers solid value.

Grenache food pairings: veal chops in red wine sauce, turkey tetrazzini, soft cheeses.

Reviews and Ratings

Andrew Bernardo rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:

Black berry and plum skin meet espresso, cocoa, meat blood, herbs, vanilla pod and smoke. 93 points. (www.ottawawinejournal.com)
Stephen Andrews reviewed this wine as follows:

Tasted Aug 7 2017. Colour medium plus ruby, thick legs on the glass. Aromas and flavours of dried chocolate strawberries, grilled plum, ruby red grapefruit, red licorice. Taste very fruity and dry, tannin has gripp, balanced with mouthwatering acidity. Pinot noir on steroids. This is best with food, pasta, roast meat. I drank it with fried charizo sausauge, sliced baby portobello mushrooms, sweet onion, fire roasted tomatoes and spaghetti topped with hard cheese. Very intense mouth flavour with the wine.
This winery is located south of Rioja and is comprised of 100% old vines Garnacha grapes. The wine was aged in French oak prior to bottling. Lots of lush raspberries, black cherries, pepper and cake spice. Drink now and for the next three years. - Community Wine Reviews
