El Circo Acróbata Garnacha 2017. 13.5% ABV.
Nose: Sweet vanilla, Black raspberry, tart cherry, anise/black licorice. Dark & brooding.
Palate: Lighter bodied than nose indicates, but traditional grenache, low acid, sweet-presenting, bright and playful, very drinkable. Cherries, roses, slight white pepper; geranium (but not flawed?). Paired with curried carrot soup. Wine enhanced everything about the soup, especially saturated every flavor and enhanced the toastiness of the cumin in the curry; soup enhanced spiciness of wine, maybe adds a little blue fruit/violets. Oak: very little new. 20%? Maybe alternatives instead of barrels? Whaaaat? This wine pairs well with vinaigrette dressing!! How many wines do that? Impressive. Guess it’s not shocking since this dressing contains olives and cheese, common wine pairing in Aragón. — a month ago
Although this winery falls within the limits of the DO Cariñena in Zaragoza, the grape is not Cariñena, rather a blend of Garnacha, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Merlot. Toasty aromas and flavors of black cherry, balsamic, dark chocolate, with mineral notes of wet earth and leaves. With ripe, sticky tannins and firm acidity, this has an excellent aging potential. Cool bottle, too! — 15 days ago
