Aquilon Campo de Borja Garnacha 2012

For international Grenache day, that was yesterday, here is a delicious Garnacha from Spain.

Full bodied and smooth, with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry and very fruity on the palate with great complexity and mouthfeel.

Showing black fruits with cedar, vanilla, earth, spices, tobacco, chocolates, coffee, cola, vanilla, mocha and peppercorn.

Long finish with round tannins and tangy cherries.

This 10 year old is rich, extracted, engaging and fruit forward. Feels like a Napa Cabernet based Bordeaux blend.

Wine Spectator 94 points. Robert Parker 94 points.

Will continue to age nicely in the next 10 years.

Good right out of the bottle, and better with airtime. Good by itself as a sipping wine. Just gorgeous.

100% Garnacha grapes were aged in (70%) French and (30%) American oak barrels for 2 years. A very small production of only a few barrels.

16% alcohol by volume.

94 points.

$150.

@"Odedi" this is indeed a spectacular wine. The “regular” wines from the house are already great but this one truly stands out.

Monte Oton Campo de Borja Garnacha 2007

#AgedWineTuesday

Dark ruby in color with a wide reddish rim.

Nose of plums, cherries, currants, spices, light oak, licorice, dark coffee, earth, herbs and peppercorn.

Medium bodied with medium acidity.

Dry on the palate with black and red fruits, earth, light oak, licorice, chocolates and coffee.

Medium length on the finish with round tannins and tangy raspberries.

This 15 year old Spanish Garnacha, drinks very fresh. Has a lot of sediments in the bottle, but otherwise I would have guessed it was a 2015 vintage.

Not showing too much complexity, and will probably be still drinkable in the next 5 to 10 years, although there is no reason to wait. I had it a couple of years ago and it is still drinking nicely.

Tasty and easy drinking with mild complexity. A nice easy red to start the evening with.

Needed 45 minutes in the decanter to show the nice tannins. Good by itself or with food.

100% Garnacha grapes.

14.5% alcohol by volume.
