Expert Reviews

91 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - September/October 2012

(sourced from vines that were reportedly planted between 1925 and 1945; aged for 21 months in large French oak barrels):  Glass-staining ruby.  Intense scents of blackberry, cherry-cola and candied violet, with strong mineral and star anise accents.  Shows energetic, focused flavors of dark berries and candied flowers, with a late kick of peppery spices.  Picks up sweetness with air, finishing impressively long, with lingering notes of vanilla and candied flowers.

Here's a monster of a Garnacha with notes of tobacco, plum and spice. This wine should carry a warning label for its 15.5% alcohol and port-like nose.

Grenache (aka Garnacha)
