Wow! This vintage has really blossomed into much more elegance than expected. Juicy, fresh and packed with ripe cherries, black berries and impressive minerality, framed by clever and already all integrated oak treatment, finishing with brisk acidity. Many good years ahead!

Deep purple in color with a short purple rim.

Nice fruity nose with black currants, cherries, blackberries, wood, vanilla, smoke, spices, chocolates, peppercorn, cola, licorice, light vegetables and mild coffee.

Full bodied and bold, with medium plus acidity and long long legs.

Dry on the palate and very fruity, with blackberries, black currants, plums, cooked cherries, vanilla, licorice, cloves, spices, light vegetables, cedar, leather, chocolates, tobacco and peppercorn.

Long finish with soft tannins and tangy cranberries.

This is a wonderful Granacha from Spain. Well balanced and enjoyable by itself or with food, like BBQ Meats.

Drinking nicely now, without too many green notes, as I expected. Light on the tannins, but the high alcohol provides it with nice structure. Spicy with a nice mouthfeel. Shows nice complexity with enough acidity that makes it interesting.

A good sipping wine, but needs 2 hours to open up properly. Not as good right out of the bottle, so please be patient.

100% Granacha grapes.

15.5% alcohol by volume.

The alcohol is a bit out of balance, but otherwise, a stellar wine

Lush and sweet fruit scented, loads of toasty oak and supportive floral hints. Full-bodied, packed with jammy red berries, really expansive, yet finishing surprisingly elegant, thanks to its tart, cranberry-like acidity. Will most likely age better than most people think!
