Rich scored this wine: 86/100

Subtle, balanced, light, elegant, devoid of complexity or any sort of mind-blowingly assertive characteristic. Perfect for the most delicate of seafood.

Drinking this wine virtually teleports me back to crawling through my grandparents Raspberry patch on a hot summer day in Ohio when I was two years old. Much more so than the other producers of Garnacha, Cala Blanca (Bev Mo private label) has made an extremely fine wine at an economy price point. I wish that they would accomplish the same with a Tempranillo blend in Rioja.
