Isaac Fernandez Seleccion

Acentor Garnacha 2019

Such a great value (and Calatayud generally is a wildly underrated region for Grenache). Nose has concentrated essence of framboise ooze, along with a bit of spice and crushed rock dust. On the palate, it’s got dense flavor concentration, very pure fruit, nice acids (especially for a Grenache), and a bit of dusty tannins. So good. Should have gotten a case. — 6 days ago

Cia. Vitícola Sileo

Costers de Cornudella Montsant Garnatxa Negra 2019

Wonderful mouthfeel, cherry and tobacco, with a hint of chocolate that leaves a semi-sweet aftertaste. Light bodied and easy to drink, pairs nicely with duck and a well-seasoned steak. — 11 hours ago

Herencia Altes

Garnatxa Blanca 2020

I’ve never had a wine from the region of Catalonia near the border of Aragon! Would love to visit the area to see Antoni Gaudi’s architecture in person. This wine made my jawls pucker with the first sip but ended up being really light and refreshing on the palate. — 5 days ago

Just had a visit here. Love the ethos behind Clos Mogador and Priorat in general. Rene Barbier’s prices are quite reasonable compared to his fellow pioneers, Alvaro Palacios (L’Ermite) and Daphne Glorian (Clos Erasmus).
