A beautiful, juicy, delicious wine, especially for this price point! Aromas of fleshy ripe dark plums and spice. Perfect for grilled lamb.

Reviews and Ratings
|Lori Kilmartin - WSET3 Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
The Mediterranean influence on the grape growing region of Catalonia makes it suitable for the Garnacha grape. This is a blend of both Garnacha and Cariñena that combines to produce a delicious rustic wine. Dry with many layers of aromas and flavours. On the nose black cherry, leather, sweet vanilla and spice. On the palate, dark berries and spice with a hint of caramel. American oak (6 months) so the tannins are a bit harsh and may smooth out with a bit more time. Long oak finish. Pair with with venison stew or a braised pot roast. Tasted June 1/2017 Retasted on August 29, 2017 and my earlier review still stands. This is a great value wine!
|Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Admittedly, "Bull's Blood" is not the most appetizing name for a wine. But wait til you taste it! Fragrant and fruity, with raspberries, cherries, pomegranate and a touch of smoke, this medium-bodied Garnacha will quickly become a summer favourite. Excellent acidity makes it versatile with savoury foods or as a patio sipper. This is the style to make a great base for Sangria, too
Tasted May 2017.

A fine example of Spanish Grenache. Ruby red, medium bodied, dry. Dark fruit (blackberry and dark cherry), dark chocolate with oaky notes and mixed sweet spice. Will definitely buy again, especially at this price point! Pair with beef stew or casserole.

I re-tasted this Spanish wine in August 2017, and still find this wine an exceptional value for the quality.
|Pamela Chiles rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
A simple but delightful, juicy and flavourful wine at this great price point. Dark cherry, spice, leather, cedar, bark, licorice. Well balanced and great with food - try lamb kebabs.

Bright ruby in the glass, black cherries, vanilla, cocoa on the nose, with some structure and spicy cherry on the palate, with a spicy finish. A beautiful barbecue wine. 89 pts.
