Almez Garnacha 2009

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

This has a lovely nose with maybe a touch of wood but mostly spicy black plums with hints of licorice, carob, sassafras and mineral earth. Rich and quite polished on entry with a fine spine of fresh crisp tannins and well-integrated acidity helping to add volume to the rather transparent core of spicy fresh plummy fruit, with a touch of blackberry thrown in for good measure. This finishes with good length and a nice refreshing character. Not a particularly big wine, but not forced either. This is well-balanced and easy to like. 87pts

A bit volatile on the nose, which adds both intensity and a little plastic here. Jammy, over-ripe and laced with coffee bean notes this has some underlying interest but just smells over done. A bit soft in the mouth with some apple core notes paired with light date, fig and graham cracker flavors that lead to a dry, touch finish. Rustic. 77pts
