WA 90 IWC 90 Pts - According to Robert Parker - Made from 100% Grenache planted in decomposed granitic soils, and aged four months in new and used French oak, this deep ruby/purple-colored 2012 Garnacha Old Vines demonstrates what high quality can be found in obscure Spanish appellations. Aromas of kirsch, lavender and strawberries emerge from this medium-bodied, dense, rich 2012. Enjoy this delicious Spanish red wine over the next 3-4 years.
According to International Wine Cellar - Inky ruby. Deeply scented bouquet of dark berries, bitter chocolate and black pepper, with a smoky quality gaining strength with air. Juicy and sweet, showing a chewy texture to its pungent blackberry and blueberry flavors. Becomes livelier with air, picking up a mineral quality and a touch of licorice that lingers on the finish. Shows the darker side of garnacha, and has the heft to handle the richest foods.
