Calatayud Garnacha Blend 2016

The label say 7% Macabeu. Never had that. Must be a regional one? Slightly rusty red. Pretty attractive in the glass. Smells fruity and floral. Maybe roses. Like potpourri. Or maybe it’s rosehipz. Flavors are zippy and classic Spanish. Spice. Cedar box. Berries. Red berries. More rosehipz. This is great. And a great deal. The bottle says it all, “We like power but we love beauty and this is beautiful.” Maybe it’s the Macabeu. — 3 days ago

If you have had Cava or White Rioja, you’ve had Macabeu (Viura in France). Simple profile, high acid, white wine.

Interesting. I’ve just never seen it on the label. Maybe it was added here for a bit of aroma and acidic zip.

El Reventón Cebreros Garnacha 2015

The nose was slightly restrained, yet very, very pretty, showing fresh, ripe strawberries off the vine, moist earth, dusty sweet spices, a mix of exotic florals, stone dust, and hints of white pepper. On the palate, I found silky-soft textures, with an almost creamy feel, delivering a sweet yet peppery display of ripe yet also savory cherry, raspberry sauce, confectionary spices, minerals and wonderfully balancing acidity. The finish was long, yet subtle, with pretty red fruits, red licorice, spice, and masses of tactile inner florals, as I felt a warming, yet pleasing sensation of heat going down. What a crazy wine and so easy to like already. — 20 days ago

Not sure why previous reviews have been a little a parsimonious about this wine it’s a fun fulled bundle of bright fruit and spice and certainly good value — 12 days ago

Campo de Borja Garnacha 2017

Young and exuberant. Deep opaque purple, and the tail literally stick to the glass. Muted but pleasant nose, leads to dark cherry and black currant with some burnt cedar wood on the palate. Rich mouthfeel but still a little tannic. Should integrate with time. Great bottle at a great price. Should age effortlessly for a decade or more. — 17 days ago

Las Rocas Viñas Viejas Calatayud Garnacha 2009

Dried bay leaves and cranberry, macerated strawberries. Potpuri feel. Subtle orange zest and nutmeg. Resolving tannins with an acid backbone carrying this citrus feel. Dried red berries. Has a Rioja feel, less the barrel program. Drink now. — 21 hours ago
