Natalie's Score: 89/100

From Viñedos y Bodegas Pablo in the Cariñena wine region, Menguante 2017 Garnacha is excellent value at $18. This winery is located in Sistema Iberico in Aragon and vineyards are 550 to 750 metres above sea level, creating a wide variance between day and night temperatures and allowing the fruit to ripen, but still remain fresh. Old vines are between 30 and 80 years of age and the wine was aged eight months in French and American oak barrels. Deep red in the glass, the wine is fragrant with dark plum, dark berries, crushed raspberries, vanilla, toasty oak spice flavours generous on the palate. Tannins are supple. Drink or hold.

Garnacha food pairings: braised beef dishes, turkey, soft cheese, roasted pork.
