  1. Evodia

    2017 / 750 ml. | Item#31225

    RP9090 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 28th Dec 2018
    The incredibly perfumed 2017 Evodia was true to its name, as apparently ’evodia’ means fragrant in the ancient Greek language. It had been bottled for a few months when I tasted it and it was very harmonious and expressive. They have reduced quantities and raised the price a bit, going into a different segment of the market, definitely a better wine than what I tasted from 2016. It achieved almost 15% alcohol in 2017, one of the earliest harvests of the last 20 years after some spring frosts and a very dry summer. Only 20% of the volume matured in barrel, while the rest was kept in concrete vats for six months. It’s very easy to drink, with unnoticeable tannins and a long, lingering finish. Super tasty and impressive for the price. 150,000 bottles were produced.

  2. Real de Aragón Garnacha Centenaria

    2017 / 750 ml. | Item#28483

    JS9393 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Friday, July 26, 2019
    These old vines make for a very compelling and richly expressed garnacha with dark-berry and plum aromas, as well as rich, earthy notes. The palate has a very succulent, fresh and juicy feel with a very seductive combination of velvety tannins and deep fruit flavors. Super grenache. Amazing value. Drink or hold.

  4. Garnacha de Fuego

    2019 / 750 ml. | Item#28784

    VN9090 pts. - Vinous - Feb 2021
    Brilliant violet. Expressive cherry, blueberry and floral pastille aromas are complemented by suggestions of cola and licorice. Sweet, seamless and broad in the mouth, offering jammy black and blue fruit and spicecake flavors that tighten up slowly on the back half. Shows appealing sweetness and no rough edges on the long, juicy finish, which features repeating spiciness and a hint of florality.

    All destemmed Grenache from the Calatayud region of Spain, the 2019 Garnacha De Fuego offers a deeper purple, almost opaque color to go with gorgeous wild strawberry and blueberry fruits intermixed with notes of candied orange and flowers. This beauty is medium-bodied, seamless, textured, and just impossible to resist. It sells for a song and way over-delivers. Enjoy bottles over the coming year or two, although I wouldn’t be surprised to see it keep even longer.

  5. Viña Zorzal Garnacha

    2019 / 750 ml. | Item#42170

    RP9191 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 30th Apr 2020
    The entry-level red simply called 2019 Garnacha is what they define as their regional bottling, using grapes from the villages of de Corella, Cintruénigo and Fitero, produced in an approachable and easy-to-understand way. It had a gentle vinification, starting with grapes of moderate ripeness with a good pH, fermented with indigenous yeasts and using 20% full clusters. The difference in vintage is noticeable when tasted with a majority of 2018s; this is a clearly riper and more open vintage, with a more Mediterranean character, with sweet fruit and aromatic herbs. It reminds me of some of my favorite old-time unoaked Garnachas from Navarra. It has a serious palate, with freshness and chalky tannins and a serious finish. Great value! 110,000 bottles produced. It was bottled unoaked in February 2020.

  6. Honoro Vera Garnacha

    2019 / 750 ml. | Item#35656

    VN9090 pts. - Vinous - Feb 2021
    Brilliant violet. Aromas of candied red and dark berries, incense and smoky minerals are complemented by a building floral nuance. Juicy and energetic on the palate, offering lively boysenberry, cherry and spicecake flavors and a hint of candied lavender. Finishes sweet and youthfully tannic, displaying strong, spice- and mineral-driven persistence. Fermented in small stainless steel tanks and aged in small used French oak barrels.

  7. Borsao Tres Picos Garnacha

    2017 / 750 ml. | Item#30246

    VN9191 pts. - Vinous - Feb 2021
    Vivid ruby. Spice- and smoke-accented red and dark berries and vanilla on the perfumed nose, along with a touch of incense. Intense bitter cherry and raspberry flavors are given lift and definition by an undertone of zesty minerality. Picks up a suave floral nuance on the persistent, smoke-tinged finish, which is framed by silky, slow-building tannins.
    SP9090 pts. - Wine Spectator - Oct 15, 2020
    Smoky, toasty and cocoa notes frame a core of ripe blackberry, currant, blood orange and licorice flavors in this fruit-centered red. Well-integrated tannins and orange peel acidity keep this focused. Drink now through 2029. 32,000 cases made, 18,000 cases imported.
    RP8888 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 30th Apr 2020
    The 2017 Tres Picos Garnacha has the disadvantage of a warmer and riper year and also from having lost the exuberance of the 2018 I tasted next to it. It’s less aromatic, and even if the élevage was slightly shortened, the palate seems to have suffered more from the effect of the new oak, which to me doesn’t really match the character of the floral and aromatic Garnacha. For fans of oaky, powerful reds. 175,000 bottles produced.

  8. Palacios Remondo La Montesa

    2017 / 750 ml. | Item#37734

    RP9292 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 28th Jun 2019
    The 2017 La Montesa is mostly Garnacha with some 8% other red varieties and comes from a warm and dry year that saw a very early harvest, up to 20 days earlier than usual. It fermented in stainless steel and matured in barrique for 12 months. It feels very Mediterranean, with notes of Mediterranean herbs and ripe berries. It’s juicy and lush, round and very pleasant, easy to drink. 670,000 bottles produced and will be labeled organic, very remarkable for such volume. It was bottled in May 2019.
    VN9191 pts. - Vinous - Apr 2021
    Limpid ruby. Expressive red and blue fruit, spicecake and floral scents pick up a hint of succulent herbs with air. Juicy, expansive boysenberry, cherry cola and candied rose flavors deepen through the midpalate. Shows very good depth and energy and closes sweet, spicy and long, with discreet tannins adding gentle grip.
