External Reviews for Honoro Vera Garnacha
Brilliant ruby. Spicy aromas of red berries, cola and fresh flowers. Sappy and fresh, with floral accents and a jolt of tangy acidity lifting the raspberry and spicy oak flavors. Finishes smooth and seamless, with vaguely red fruit character and no obvious tannins.
Soft and fruit-forward, with bright cherry and red raspberry fruit notes. Excellent with tacos or chili.
Deep red. Oak-spiced dark berry and cherry aromas display very good intensity. Juicy and sweet, with lush blackberry and cherry-cola flavors and a seamless texture. Shows a touch of bitterness on the finish, which lingers with good spicy grip. This is an excellent value.
The 2010 Honoro Vera Garnacha sourced from Calatayud spent a brief 2 months in French oak. Aromas of sage, thyme, and black cherry lead to a plush, succulent wine with layers of spicy fruit. All that is missing is complexity, but for $9 who’s complaining?
