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.
Gwen Barton rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

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.
Lynn Van Der Linde rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

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.
Lynn Van Der Linde - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

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.
Tasted June 2017.
Cherie Cole rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Mouthwatering and refreshing with ripe, dark cherry, forest floor, leather and smoke, on nose and palate. Pair with grilled sausage. Tasted June 01 2017.
Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Ruby red, 13.5% ABV. Juicy, mouthwatering raspberry, pomegranate, savoury. Medium bodied, well balanced, medium tannins and moderate acidity. Pair with gourmet burgers, saucy BBQ chicken, quinoa salad with dried fruit. Tasted 2015 vintage June 2017. 88 points.
Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

A simple easy-drinking fruity and floral Spanish red wine perfect for BBQ weather. The palate is light-medium bodied showing moderate acidity, mild integrated tannins and a long juicy cherry finish. Tasted June 2017 by @sommsosa | bespoketastings.ca
