Garnacha de Fuego Old Vines 2011

External Review by Prestige Wine & Spirits:

The 2011 Garnacha de Fuego, a 100% Grenache cuvee, was aged in both stainless steel and neutral French oak. There are 10,000 cases for the United States. This amazing wine boasts a dark ruby/purple color along with a sweet kiss of jammy black cherries intertwined with crushed rock notes that give the wine an undeniable minerality. As it hits the palate, a full-bodied, voluptuous texture takes hold and the flavor profile moves towards blacker fruits (ripe raspberries and black currants) intermixed with camphor and forest floor. This full-bodied, rich, glycerin-filled effort should drink well for 4–5 years, perhaps longer.

Opaque ruby. Primary red and dark berry aromas are complicated by floral and mineral notes. Juicy and supple in texture, offering energetic black raspberry and boysenberry flavors and a touch of cracked pepper. The supple finish lingers with attractive sweetness and impressive persistence. Remarkable value here and there's a lot to go around as this winery owns over 650 acres of old vine garnacha plantings, which sit at 950 to 1000 meters altitude.

This generous red delivers blackberry, currant, licorice and dried fig flavors on a thick, almost syrupy texture. Shows gentle tannins and just enough acidity for liveliness. Drink now through 2015.
