Via Edetana Grenache Blend 2005

9.0

I still have quite a few wines like this from my early days of wine collecting - stuff that was highly rated or recommended in the $15-30 price range (this was $18 from Wine Library in 2009). Wines that could provide a great quality for the price, but that no one, including me, ever expected would spend a dozen years in my cellar. Many people would assume wines like this one to be hopelessly past prime, but over and over again I’m surprised how well so many of them - from both the old and new world - hold up. At first this wine seemed to be over the hill, with some brownish tinge to the color, balsamic aroma and leathery mouthfeel, but the longer it’s in my glass the more I’m enjoying it. The sweet and intense red cherry fruit is sightly raisiny in character yet still somehow bright, the tannins are integrated but still firm, and the acid is balanced and mouth watering. Pretty classic Grenache-Carignane that would hold its own against Priorats costing several multiples of its price. Sometimes wine makes you smile (most times). — 10 hours ago

March 30, 2021. 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Cabernet Franc, 15% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot. Whoa! Stewed dark fruit, earth, leather, spice . Full bodied and complex. Just want to keep drinking it to experience all the flavors. Intensity. Exactly what I love in a wine. ♥️ — 11 days ago

Fresh and spicy. Surprisingly this was already on the downhill on day two dispite being full bodied, young and tannic on day one. Almost Pinot Noir type of character. — 11 days ago

Edetana

Edetària Terra Alta Garnatxa Blend 2017

Red cherry, herbs, and olive brininess with chalky minerality. Well-integrated but firm tannins and fresh acidity. A graceful wine with a bit of a wild side, too. Purchased at Suburban Wines in Yorktown Heights, NY. — 17 days ago
