This 100% garnacha offers exceptional value for its cost. Intense aroma of strawberry and black cherry with full body and intense red and black fruit flavors. More than 15% abv but it barely shows on the palate. Not complex but this would be a hit at any BBQ

Peppery rose petals and raspberry aromatics. Nice acidity and some pleasant tannic texture, but it’s too fruity overall, lacking grit and nerve. 14.5% abv (sample)

Raspberries and pepper on the nose. Lingering ripe red fruit, high tannin aftertaste.

Nice zesty mouth at the onset, not too dry, slightly jammy and sweet.
