Garnacha Blend

Finca La Melonera

La Encina Inglés Ronda Garnacha-Syrah Blend 2015

A rare and special blend of Garnacha, Tintilla de Rota, and Tempranillo from the incredibly beautiful town of Ronda in Andalucia. This is an earthy, macho, and lusty wine! My friend described it as a bad boy, the kind that makes you want to behave badly. This wine has mineral aromas and flavors of dried mud and straw combined with black cherry and black currant notes that stretch into savory, meaty impressions. Tobacco and vanilla flavors linger long on the palate. With smooth tannins, and medium plus balanced acidity, this is a winner! — 2 days ago

Gran Clos Priorat Garnacha Blend 2000

First , I am a Grenache fan. Actually toured the Piorat region wineries with a guide a few years ago. This is a luscious, chewy, delicious example of the Grenache grape. — 2 days ago

Honoro Vera Calatayud Garnacha 2017

Legs, 7/10. Smells heavenly, like berries and vanilla and just a hint of spice. Taste is soft and the finish is velvety, and all the fruits on the nose are present. Really good!! — 11 hours ago

[Bluegray] Priorat Garnacha Blend

Te deja un regusto ácido perfecto para un mignon o una costilla. Mucha personalidad de vino. Esa zona tarragonesa jamás me ha quedado a deber. Muy rico este Priorat — 8 days ago

Bodega Comando G

Tumba del Rey Moro Sierra de Gredos Madrid Garnacha 2015

Just outside Mardid, in the Sierra del Gredos lies the Tumba del Rey Moro Vineyard. Until a few years ago, this site was almost impossible to access, until Fernando García & Dani Landi spent several months removing brush and overgrowth in order to be able to farm the 60-70 year old vines planted to the granite and quartz soils. This 100% Garnacha is simply gorgeous, with a incredible silky, polished texture, and the elegance and refinement that easily rivals some of the finest wines on the planet. Its characteristics of wild berries, floral, spices, earth and herbs are pure and focused. It continues to thoroughly impress with its wonderful precision and balance through the long finish. While this is certainly impressive now, in due time, this could be something very special. — 10 days ago

La Viña de Ayer Viejas Viñas De Cebreros Garnacha 2016

DO Cebreros, which is a new Denominación de Origen in Spain. If I were doing a blind tasting I might think this was a Bourgogne (Burgandy)! Sparkling bright red color, medium clear. Aromatic notes of strawberries and raspberries with smokey vanilla and tobacco undertones. Subtle earthy aromas and flavors of mushroom and slate. The tannins are so elegant, so refined, with a luscious, inviting acidity. Long, finish. This will age and just get better and better. Wow! — 25 days ago

Campo de Borja Garnacha 2016

Monthly WTF wine group meet up. Theme was “bring something good”. All wines (minus the bubbles and SB) were tasted blind.

Young, but really delicious right now. Flaunting rich oak tones up front (I guessed American Oak), dark baked berry pie, oozing blackberries and blueberries over fig and coca dusted dates. Hardly any black pepper. Kiss of spice toward the finish. I called this Ridge zin. Thanks,

Marqués de Cáceres

Crianza Rioja Tempranillo Blend 2015

Marqués de Cáceres is about the only Rioja I see everywhere. They must produce a boat load of it. They nail the QPR and it’s a pretty safe bet considering what else is out there. This was 8€. Crianza (1 year in oak, 1 in bottle, but 4 years down the Crianza and Reserva distinction no longer matters?). Ripe, sweet red fruits, a little tart on opening, tannic. Sneaks in at 90. — 12 days ago
