Delicious Grenache. It started off so funky like rich soil with tons of acid but integrated over time into a smooth wine.

Kind of funky reduction but blew off a bit. It had a really nice lean balance

A lean style of Central Spain garnacha, dark fruit dipped in granite minerality. Yes, more bistro wine.

Capa y densidad alta, en nariz potente y limpia, palote de fresa, anis notas balsámicas. En boca buena entrada, paso con un gran secante y final controlado y muy rico... 😍😍😍 mejorará...

Cool expression of granacha- dark and dusty. Enough with the secondary fermentation already, natural winemaking.

2013. It has a medium ruby color that's slightly cloudy with a young nose of cherries and tabacco while showing a tint of mustiness and slight volatile acidity. The mouth is dry and full of fruit recalling the cherries and adding some cranberries and dark chocolate. All and all it's a good wine but a bit dry and acidic for my taste. More marketing from Gredos. Good but not great. 15% alcohol with a medium color depth????
