Light, red fruit driven, great acidity. Best paired with two complete goofballs

Enjoyable. Lighter and more on the fruitier side for a Spanish garnacha. Reminded me of a Beaujolais. Watermelon, crisp, and a little grapey even. Light tannins. Would have been good slightly chilled on this warm day. Paired with Spanish sausage.

I love experiencing this side of Grenache. With so many boozy, high-extract fruit bombs coming out of Spain these days it’s easy to forget what this wonderful varietal can express in its mother country. Bright cherries and subtle floral aromatics. Snappy acidity, great freshness, lovely purity. VA is a tad elevated on the nose, red fruits and white pepper take over the mid palate. A bit reminiscent of Pinot Noir in terms of palate weight and overall mouthfeel impact. Very pretty and lifted. I’m a big fan of this producer, and I find this “entry level” cuvée to be the most charming.

I really admire this wine, deft restraint, but without throwing the baby out with the bath water, it's clearly Grenache from a warm region, but it's completely fresh and clean, complemented tapas from seafood to steak

Nice attack, mid palate. Finish leaves me longing for more. Much more...

Pretty much what you'd want Spanish Garnacha to be. Great QPR.

So fresh and vibrant. Finds itself between a riper Pinot and a lighter Grenache. Really fit the moment. Great deal at less than $20. Charleston wine game is on point.

Love this! Restrained, focused, pure expression. Exciting spice and drinks exceptionally light. Awesome fruit.

Big flavors of red cherry and mouthwatering mineral notes.

Fruit forward, but not too ripe. Not as big as many other Spanish Grenache. Great value!
