Twisted Oak 2009 Torcido Garnacha (Calaveras County)

  • Online Exclusive
  1. $32
What a wine. It tries to intimidate. At first, by its bottle size and alcohol level, but in the glass this 100% Garnacha is like a purring kitten—well a purring 20-pound Maine Coon cat, joyous in its pretty red fruit, and its earthy, meaty, vanilla and cinnamon toast range of goodness. All lush, Twisted Oak’s Torcido is, like a retro soap opera, brave and beautiful.  — V.B.  (5/1/2012)

Alto Moncayo 2008 Garnacha (Campo de Borja)

  • Editors' Choice
  1. $47
Gets out of the blocks with massive cedar, balsamic, tobacco and bold berry aromas. It’s super rich and thorough in the mouth, with excellent balance for a 16% ABV Garnacha. Flavors of roasted black fruits, coconut, coffee and mocha are giant; finishes even more oaky and barrel-driven, with vanilla, coconut and toast flavors. Drink now through the winter of 2013.  — M.S.  (12/15/2011)

Alto Moncayo 2009 Aquilon Garnacha (Campo de Borja)

  1. $155
This is a powerful, rich, toasty Garnacha, with grit, earth and spice galore on the bouquet. It feels tough, masculine and tannic, with a mix of beefy black-fruit flavors elevated by molasses and spice. Firm and showing some burn on the finish, along with notes of black licorice and peppery spice. Only 200 cases made. Drink now–2016.  — M.S.  (2/1/2013)

The Gil family understands how to make fully loaded reds that are balanced and highly enjoyable. Look for a saturated, rich nose with brandied plum, blackberry pastry and toasty oak notes. The palate is both lush and racy, with dark berry and chocolate flavors. It finishes huge and masculine, almost like fudge. Drink now–2015.  — M.S.  (12/31/2012)

Smoky, peppery and tight on the nose, with leather and dark fruit aromas. The palate is chewy and dense, with syrupy richness and sweet flavors of ripe blackberry, toast, coffee, mocha and chocolate. Big and round on the finish; rock solid and seriously built. Drink now through 2013.  — M.S.  (12/15/2011)

A big, dark, modern wine with lemon and shoe polish on the nose but also rich black fruit aromas. The palate is both elegant and beefy, with lush blackberry and copious spice and chocolate flavors. Finishes full, mossy, rich and slightly herbal. A big success for varietal Rioja Grenache; drink now through 2012.  — M.S.  (7/1/2011)

Alto Moncayo 2007 Garnacha (Campo de Borja)

Excellent Garnacha in very modern dressing. The nose is sweet, candied, lightly baked and rich, with hints of prune, coconut and fine aged cheese. The palate is smooth and deep, with blackberry, molasses and licorice flavors. Sturdy and studly wine, with weight and only a pinch of heat and bite. Six hundred cases produced; drink now–2012.  — M.S.  (10/1/2010)
