A little light for my liking. Better suited for those who are into the less robust reds. Still a decent buy for the price. Read more

This Eric Solomon custom cuvee is made from a high-altitude vineyard planted in schist and slate soils. Composed of 100% tank-aged Garnacha, it is a mineral-laced, elegant, finesse-styled effort displaying plenty of raspberry, sweet and sour cherry notes intermixed with a distinctive minerality. Drink it over the next 2–3 years.

Glass-staining ruby. Aromas of blackberry, boysenberry, smoky minerals and white pepper, with a suggestion of candied rose. Supple on entry, then firmer in the mid-palate, with vibrant flavors of black and blue fruits and floral pastilles.   Finishes with powerful blue fruit and spice notes and very good length.

Ein ausgewogener, fruchtiger, gehaltvoller und recht nachhaltiger Rotwein. Rubinrot mit Violettreflexen. Mittelkräftiges Bouquet. Im Gaumen zeigt sich der Wein trocken. Saftige Säure. Die Struktur ist weich, von mittlerer Fülle und harmonisch. In der Rückaromatik wiederum viel Frucht und leicht rauchige Röstaromatik. Mittellanger Abgang.

Sexy, high-pitched aromas of strawberry preserves, black raspberry, minerals and pungent flowers. Concentrated but not at all heavy; sweet raspberry and blackberry flavors are lifted by a hint of violet.

Winemaker's Notes:

Altovinum Evodia Old Vine Garnacha offers a lovely perfume of spice box, mineral, and wild cherry. This perfectly balanced mix of flavors lends itself to an intensely fruity wine with loads of taste, a smooth texture, and a pure, fruit-filled finish. Pairs well with white and red meats roasted or grilled, big game, meat casseroles and stews, complex sauces, foie gras and legumes or blue and cured cheeses. 805109990012
