88 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - September/October 2004

($11; old-vines garnacha) Medium red-ruby. Expressive nose combines roasted, peppery red fruits and licorice. Juicy and spicy on the palate, with red fruit and black pepper flavors.

This is the only one of these Vega Sindoa wines that's not estate-bottled, coming from leased vineyards, most of them about 2,000 feet above sea level. (Fine Estates From Spain Dedham MA)
