This is a little gem. Beautiful dark berries and cherries without sugary gimmicks, not quite full bodied but robust and layered, and certainly a bargain for this quality Catalan Garnacha
This is very much a product of its Catalonian terroir near the French border, the region's moderating Mediterranean climate helping it achieve balance and complexity that are simply astounding at the price. It opens with olives, capers, and brine, with a sense of herbs growing out of rocks, all quite meaty and minerally. But then the soft Garnacha fruit appears, dark blueberries, plums, and ripe cherries, then lighter and sweeter, raspberry and strawberry, with licorice, cranberry, vanilla, and pepper. The flavours are bold, but there's no cloying sweetness or thick soupiness. Fantastic.
Good typicity for this Grenache varietal showing high alcohol, lots of fruit in a rounder softer package. A lively, fresh nose of red berry and black cherry, fruit forward on the palate with caraway/mint and cinnamon. Full bodied but light on its feet. A bargain at this price so load up while bbq season is still upon us. Aug. 2015.
