The Spaniards do it right, as this absurd value testifies to -- a distinctive, peppery red fruitted joy that could easily be mistaken for a $16-$19 French red!

James Suckling: 92 Points

(9/28/2020) "A fresh, vivid grenache with sliced-plum, citrus-rind character and hints of cream. Medium body. Delicious fruit. Nice tension to this. Drink now."

Vinous, Josh Raynolds: 92 Points

(6/2021) "Deep garnet. Mineral-tinged cherry, raspberry, vanilla and exotic spice aromas show excellent clarity and take on a smoky nuance with air. Appealingly sweet and expansive on the palate, offering juicy red fruit, rose pastille and spicecake flavors energized by a minerally topnote. Shows impressive energy and florality on the persistent finish, which is given shape by polished, even tannins. Drinking Window: 2022 - 2029."

Our Score: 91 Points

(9/2020) Seriously old vines, from 70 to115 years old, are the source for this wonderfully elegant and powerful Garnacha. Raised in used French oak, this peppery, red-fruited red is joyous, distinctive, earthy and delicious. More than most all Cotes-du-Rhones can offer at this price, this could easily be mistaken for a $16-$19 French red. The Spaniards do it right, as this absurd value testifies to. Drink now and thru 2024.
