What a nice surprise! Old world style garnacha, with tight tannins, white pepper, assorted spice (cardoman notes), and no excessive fruitiness. Really great value, the way Spanish wines used to be before the imports all became new world style fruit bombs.

Deep and dark for a Granacha (aka Grenache). Smells lovely. Clean, fresh water meets berry patch. Lightest of barny element in the nose too. Flavor is fruit driven and oh so clean. Bitterness is prefect. Like cherry juice and fresh blackberries, but not as sweet. Plenty of smoke and woodsy-ness with the fruits & berries. Just lovely, affordable, high quality wine from España!

Excellent aroma, modest taste but for $11, hard to beat

Cherry, blackberry. Light with a little oak after taste, but easily drinkable. Great post-work glass.

Forward fruit but not too ripe or overbearing . Decent structure so really good value and food friendly. Would def get again.
