External Reviews for Bodegas Atteca Garnacha de Fuego
The 2009 Garnacha de Fuego was sourced from 60- to 80-year-old vines at 3000 feet of elevation, insane for an $8 wine. Aside from the price, the other piece of good news is that there are 6500 cases for the USA market. Purple-colored with spicy black cherry aromas that jump from the glass, this is a forward, friendly, ripe effort with no hard edges. Drink this crowd-pleaser over the next 2-3 years. Neon purple in color, young and jumpy, but hey, that's what simple Garnacha from this part of Spain is all about. Expect fruity, jammy aromas and a blazing, full-fruited palate of rubber, black fruits and bacon. It's grapey but honest, and for the price it's as expected. M.S.
