Cva Zestos Garnacha Old Vines 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

"A staggering value, made from old vine (over 40 years of age), high altitude (2800 feet) Grenache, this head-pruned vineyard planted on granite soils has produced an unbelievable wine for the price. Lots of kirsch, strawberry, black currant and licorice aromas jump from the glass of this medium-bodied, richly fruity, surprisingly intense red...90" WA 8/12 CVA is the abbreviation for Cia de Vinos del Atlantico

Quite floral on the nose with slight jammy raspberry fruit and a bit of a sweet carob note, slightly caramel cast to the aromas. Shows a hint of VA. Light and fresh on entry, then firming up nicely in the mouth, this is wide open and easygoing on the palate with enough acid to keep this nicely juicy. A touch medicinal, mineral and very polleny with a note of ginseng in the mouth, some furry little tannins show up on the backend and add a little edginess to the moderately long, fresh finish. A bit grapey and rustic, this is delicious though it could use a nice grilled rack of lamb ribs to help balance out some of the structure. 85pts
