A little foxy at first, with lively, forward aromas of herbs, bramble, wild berry and black cherry. Doesn’t take long in the glass to show its qualities, which include structure and plenty of fruit, herbs, pepper and dry spice on the palate. A voluminous, interesting Garnacha to slot into the everyday category.
Mostly Garnacha (with 12% Syrah), this Mediterranean-styled wine is locked and loaded on the nose: There’s a ton of mineral, sunshine and earthy blackberry aromas. The palate is full with cherry and raspberry, and the acidity is strong enough to keep the wine stable. In the end it’s almost lean and perky.
Green and hard, with carob and ashtray aromas. The palate is simple and narrow, with sour red-fruit flavors that come to a slightly bitter ending. A defining combination of tartness and bubble gum dust isn’t impressive.
