Reviews and Ratings

Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Aromas of blackberry, plum, black pepper and smoke. Full bodied, medium acidity, and ripe, slightly tart fruit on the finish. Enjoy with braised meat dishes or strong cheese.
Christian Marcoux rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Created by La Vina winery, but distributed by Anciano, the Garnacha 2018 Classico offers aromas of dried strawberry, roasted plum, pink grapefruit, hibiscus, leather and pie crust. Medium-bodied with silky tannins and suave acidity, this Spaniard will please at the first sip. Palate: dried cherry, blackberry, orange peel, black pepper, leather and spice. Enjoy.

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.
