Via Edetana Grenache Blend 2005

Palmer Emmitt

I still have quite a few wines like this from my early days of wine collecting - stuff that was highly rated or recommended in the $15-30 price range (this was $18 from Wine Library in 2009). Wines that could provide a great quality for the price, but that no one, including me, ever expected would spend a dozen years in my cellar. Many people would assume wines like this one to be hopelessly past prime, but over and over again I’m surprised how well so many of them - from both the old and new world - hold up. At first this wine seemed to be over the hill, with some brownish tinge to the color, balsamic aroma and leathery mouthfeel, but the longer it’s in my glass the more I’m enjoying it. The sweet and intense red cherry fruit is sightly raisiny in character yet still somehow bright, the tannins are integrated but still firm, and the acid is balanced and mouth watering. Pretty classic Grenache-Carignane that would hold its own against Priorats costing several multiples of its price. Sometimes wine makes you smile (most times). — 2 months ago

Delicious! This is not a "negra" though, it's an old vine Garnaxa Blanca. Wonderfully acidic, balanced, lime zesty and aromatic, with notes of white flowers. — 5 years ago

Finca La Personal 2014

16.5/20 (90/100) Элегантный аромат с нотами вишни, брусники, калины и шоколада. Довольно тельное с высокой кислотностью и чуть суховатыми танинами. Очень хорошо. (09.05.17) #fenavin2017 — 3 years ago


Edetària Terra Alta Garnatxa Blend 2017

Red cherry, herbs, and olive brininess with chalky minerality. Well-integrated but firm tannins and fresh acidity. A graceful wine with a bit of a wild side, too. Purchased at Suburban Wines in Yorktown Heights, NY. — 3 months ago
