Vino de la Tierra Bajo Aragón Garnacha Blanca 2017

I like it better than the already fantastic 2016. Melon fruit, saltiness and vanilla makes a very interesting combination. Not your everyday wine. — 10 days ago

Bodegas Alto Moncayo

Veraton Campo de Borja Garnacha 2016

A joint venture of Jorge Ordonez, Bodegas Borsao and others, in conjunction with Chris Ringland. Dark Ruby with dark berry fruit aromas, from 40+ year old vines and aged for 16 months in oak. On the palate flavors of ripe plum and black fruits with cacao, spice and smoky notes. Soft tannins, vivid acidity ending with gentle oak spice on the long finish. Wines from Spain are superb and at great values, especially Bodegas Alto Moncayo wines. — 8 hours ago

Legado del Moncayo

"Montaña" Old Vines Garnacha 2017

This Granacha is extraordinary! Emerging fruits of blueberry and cherries permeate at the first bouquet followed on the palate. Decadent spices as this wine integrates with Mother Nature. A deep, rich purple color while complex and yet simple! A few bottles should be stashed away for when you a having good friends over for appetizers and filet! — 5 days ago

Bodegas Ignacio Marin

Divinis Grenache 1903

Pretty, pretty label. Eye catching. And screw top is nice. Dark with a rusty edge. Smells a bit funky. Earth, herbs, ground. Pine cones? Little bit of elderberry. Flavors are meaty and tasty. More berries. Like really good blackberry and licorice. All sorts berry flavored. This is not as inky and bowl you over as some high altitude Spanish Granacha is, but it’s got plenty of acid and hits the right tones everywhere. Very likable. — a day ago
