Great energy and length, with a chalky balance to the ripe fruit. Just a tad too much sweet blueberry pie for my taste.

Volcanic, earthy ash with tart cherry, sage, thyme, and bright acidity.

Alicante Bouschet España style! Stewed plum, pepper, and leather scents. Plush red and black fruit flavors punctuated with lively acid and soft tannins. An awesome pairing with chicken kebab.

Light, some underripe raspberry, cherry syrup. Light. Good acid on finish

Tintorera means the flesh as well as the skin of this grape is red burn the label is misleading in its trumpeting the wine as garnacha. In fact it is Alicante bouschet, a grape that is a hybriddeveloped in the 1860s with one parent grenache. The grape struggles to ripen so this wine has zippy acidity and lively cranberry, strawberry, violet and cassis flavors. It finishes a bit short but overall it's a delightful if not terribly serious find
