At first all new oak and hot alcohol. Like canilla vodka. With a three hour plus decant...what a wine this is. Modern on its stunning power, massive black pepper, chewy tannin, dried cherry and raspberry, slight bread quality. Vanilla and menthol on the finish. Not subtle, but spellbinding and a nice value.

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.

16/20 (88/100) Фруктовый аромат с заметным тоном шоколада. Умеренная кислотность и чуть суховатые танины. Не хватает насыщенности во вкусе.

Варенье из чёрной смородины, спелая черешня, мягкая слива, черничный йогурт, стручки ванили, кора, кофе, выжженная земля, оттенки кожи и бальзамика. Полное плюшевое тело с сильной экстракцией, достаточной кислотностью, аккуратными танинами и напалмовой алкогольной структурой. Мощно, экспрессивно и амбициозно, с высоким градусом и беззастенчивой бочкой, молодо, но не закрыто. Дело вкуса, конечно, и все же для меня слишком жарко, вульгарно и тяжеловесно, утомительно после первых двух бокалов.

Purple, aromas of fermented fruit, a briery blackberry front end with forest floor on the finish. Well structured and in harmony. 🍷🍷🍷✖️✖️

Caramel, cola and black tea. This a fabulous Grenache with much more than the bright fruit you might expect.

Kvalitativt tjångvin. Känns mycket voluminös i munnen. Cherry vanilla but no coke. Småparti på systemet.
