Natalie's Score: 90/100
A mouth-watering, delicious Spanish red. Full-bodied, but not heavy with notes of ripe dark red fruit. this wine is a blend of Garnacha (otherwise known as Grenache), Tempranillo, Cariñena and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. This Gran Reserva is a rare opportunity to taste mature Spanish wine, a rare treat . Pair with veal.
Garnacha food pairings: braised beef dishes, turkey, soft cheese, roasted pork, lamb.
Terrific Turkey Wine

|Heather Wall - CS; WSET Advanced rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
A first whiff of this wine makes one believe they have found an ages old treasure. Rustic, musty, forest floor, ripe dark fruit, a damp cellar. ThisGarnacha(Grenache), Tempranillo, and Carinena blend was aged for two years in oak and three years in the bottle before hitting the shelves. Full-bodied and elegant. Integrated tannins and balanced acidity . $16.95 is a steal for this mature Spanish wine. Buy a case. This Gran Reserva still has some cellar potential.
Good cuts of beef, roasted lamb shank, game. Points for value. XD
Tasted: December 2014
|Kimberly Inksater - Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
The aromas of worn leather, ripe dark berries, and tobacco are characteristic of this gran reserva blend of garnacha, tempranillo and carignan. It was barrel-aged for 2 years and bottle-aged for three years prior to release. Now, in 2015, it's a dry, silky smooth Spanish wine that I enjoyed with a cheese plate but I wouldn't hesitate to serve it with a lamb or pork roast, or paella.

Lovely floral aromas over plums and old oak barrels. Smooooth with more prominent oak on the palate compared to the nose.
|Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
This Gran Reserva is ruby red, and declared at 13.5% ABV. Decanted 2h and aromatics increased significantly. Showing field strawberry, plum, black currant, pure dark chocolate aromatics and on the palate. Medium acidity, medium plus fruit intensity, medium bodied, medium tannins. Tart and grippy mouthfeel. Persistence of field berry and chocolate with medium finish. Enjoy 2016-2018. Tasted Jan 2016.
|Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:|
Tasted in 2018. Still showing some considerable fruit - mainly strawberry and ripe plum, and some dusty smoke aromas. Medium body, acidity is medium+, fruit is present, maybe a bit more muted on the palate than on the nose. Tannins have smoothed out. Still lots of life! Enjoy with pork or braised beef.

Very good buy
|This Spanish red wine blend is mostly Garnacha grapes, along with some with Tempranillo and Cariñena (Carignan). This wine was matured for 2 years in oak barrels then another 3 years in bottle before being released from the winery. - Community Wine Reviews|
