Slight dark berry and black pepper taste. Slight tannins accompany they red and black berries. Very nice for cookouts but would be hard to drink alone.

Bright light florals balanced by a simple tartness. Very clean and fruity with flavors of banana, strawberry and cherry. The finish is slightly chocolately. A young, simple wine, that, nonetheless stood up to hanger steak with onions, in a butter sauce.

Quite enjoyable red. Fresh, light for a red, and very smooth. Pleasant dark berry nose, with more berries on the palate, as well as pepper. Really reminded me of a nice plate of blackberries sprinkled with fresh cracked pepper and drizzled with a fine balsamico.

Medium-dark plum color at first pour, with minimal aromatics. On it's own, drinkable but not noteworthy. Light on the palate, some nice acidity. Better with cheese. Best pairing for this was a mixed baby green salad with goat feta cheese, black and green marinated olives, tomatoes, fresh pork flank strips and a lime-citrus vinagrette. The dressing really opened up the flavors to the wine, and it was simply divine. This wine definitely likes the company of some food. A nice value for $9.00 at World Market.

Orange peel and spices, classic Grenache, easy to drink and very easy to match to fish. Lovely but not great.

Evodia; the Greek word for "aroma" -- with that being said, it's a perfect name for this wine! Very fresh, straightforward scents of raspberry and blackberry, plus a hint of cracked pepper. Juicy and tannin-free, with spicy red and dark berry flavors and gentle mineral lift. Easy to drink and a superb value, with good finishing bite.

"Royal robe to the eye. Exotic and richly perfumed. On the palate layers of confited cherries and blueberries--exuberantly rich but not at all cloying or overbearing. despite its dense flavors, it retains a floral freshness with its perfume of violets. With time, a savory note emerges, as it should--this is Grenache after all from the Mediterranean! Wow! Drinks well above it's price! But I shouldn't be surprised--it's crafted by Jean-Marc Lafage of Las Rocas, who sources the Grenache clusters from the same set of high-altitude vineyards. This is BY FAR one of the greatest values on the market, a wine that drinks as if it were some higher end Rhone red such as Vacqueyras or Gigondas, and one to purchase by the case!

This Spanish Garnacha is an easy-drinking and flavorful table wine.

The vineyards for this new project are between 850 and 1000 meters of elevation and the Garnacha vines are up to 100 years of age, planted on pure slate. Purple-colored, this 100% Garnacha offers a lovely perfume of spice box, mineral, and wild cherry. This leads to an intensely fruity wine with loads of flavor, a smooth texture, and a pure, fruit-filled finish.
