Fantastic biodynamic garnacha from an underrated appellation. This wines has great concentration due to being from very old vines (80-100 yrs) and a wonderful price (usually under $13!). Bright ruby red color with big nose of cherries, plums, and spicy red currant with a touch of vanilla. The palate explodes with juicy red fruit framed with an underlying minerality. Dry, medium bodied, with medium acidity and tannins with a bit of grip, and a nice long slightly creamy finish. Un-oaked, with 3 months in the bottle before release.

Young, jumpy and slightly candied, but that's just fine given the price range it's playing in. To get old-vines Garnacha for a song is not uncommon, yet this wine's thick, fruity palate goes beyond the norm. And with a round mouthfeel built on light-framed tannins, it's easygoing as can be. Drink now, but don't put it under the microscope.

Vinedos y Bodegas Pablo is a family-owned estate, founded in 1760, emphasizing the use of indigenous varietals and biodynamic farming. This is an impressive portfolio from top to bottom. For starters is the unoaked 2005 Menguante Garnacha produced from 80-year-old vines. Purple in color, it exhibits a fragrant nose of kirsch and blueberry. Medium-bodied, this wine is packed with ripe fruit and layers of flavor all the way through to the finish. This awesome value can be likened to a Cotes du Rhone on steroids. Kudos to the Pablo family!
