Winemaker's Notes:

Score: 89 Points (Robert Parker) Tasting Notes: Remarkably deep for a wine of this price made form Garnacha, the wine offers a nose of brooding black cherry and blueberry. Concentrated, ripe, and balanced on the palate, this flavorful, lengthy effort will drink well over the next four years. Outstanding Value!

Opaque purple color. Earthy cherry aroma. Plum forward flavour increasing in spice to a delightfully strong jammy finish. Med body, strong tannins. Lofty but with structure. Bought at Kensington Spirits Aug 2010, $14

Was very pleasantly surprised by the flavor; medium-bodied, fruity, dry. Beautiful garnet color which I did not expect to find in a grenache. Perfect on its own for sipping or with a meal. For the price, it is a steal!

Inky purple color. Potent aromas of blackberry, blueberry, olive and violet; smells like a syrah, and a good one at that. Chewy dark berry and bitter cherry flavors are framed by dusty tannins that give way to the fruit on the firm, focused back end. This represents incredible value.

Ruby-red. Pungent, mineral-tinged cherry and blackcurrant aromas accented by sweet mocha and espresso. Fresh, firm and energetic, with tangy red and dark berry flavors and an impression of solidity. Finishes spicy, sweet and long, with a lingering note of candied licorice. This offers rare complexity for the price.

The grapes for this new project were sourced from 60- to 80-year-old vines whose already low yields were reduced an additional 70% by the weather conditions of the vintages. A glass-coating opaque purple, remarkably deep for a wine of this price made from Garnacha, the wine offers a nose of brooding black cherry and blueberry. Concentrated, ripe, and balanced on the palate, this flavorful, lengthy effort will drink well over the next four years. It is an outstanding value.

Bright purple. Smoky blackberry and blueberry on the nose, with subtle spice and floral qualities adding interest. Fleshy and sweet, with deep dark berry preserve flavors, supple texture and bright mineral lift. More than simply a fruit bomb, but this wine's berry flavors are impressively forceful. Finishes with very good, spicy persistence and a lingering blueberry quality. A gift at the price.

The 2007 Garnacha de Fuego is 100% old-vine Garnacha sourced from 60-80 year old vineyards offering tiny yields. Dark ruby/purple-colored the nose exhibits spice box, earth notes, and wild cherry. On the palate it is slightly compact albeit with excellent flavors and good length. It is a steal at the asking price. Drink it over the next two years.

Ripe raspberry, creamy vanilla and spicy licorice mingle in this exuberant red, which is alluring, plush but tender, structured more by acidity than tannins. Drink now through 2010.
