El Circo

Acróbata Garnacha 2017

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.

Finca Aylés

3000 Cariñena 2016

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

Montsalvat Priorat Cariñena Garnacha 2004

2004 vintage on 11.11.18
Showing age both in color as in nose. Some tertiary notes. The sweet tones are gone and the spicey ones took over with some acids to balance that. Some mint and licorice are there.
