Tres Ojos Garnacha 2007
This smells fresh and exciting with transparent black fruit allowing notes of soil, tar and anise to peek through. Absolutely bursting with fresh fruit in the mouth this has zesty acids and just the right level of soft fruit tannins to give this a lovely, refreshing mouthfeel. A great value and perfect wine for those days by the Barbecue or simply for sharing with friends. This can take a light chill for enjoyment all summer long. 91ptsAdd winemaker's notes

Decent for the price. A bit too much sediment, but alright.
Cherry flavors mix with cocoa, mocha on the nose. In the mouth there's more cherry along with chocolate and a little ethanol. Medium bodied with light tannins on the finish. Nice
Nice and Spicy.
Nose: New World ripe fruit, exactly like strawberries and cream with few other discernable notes. Notes: Strawberry Twizzlers on the attack, opens up to some arugula, pepper and raspberry in the mid-palate, with red fruit and tannins on the finish. Firm tannic structure but not overly dry and full-bodied. Pair with: Burgers on the grill
And it even doesn't come corked! Nice surprise.
External Reviews for Tres Ojos Garnacha
For any Australian wine drinker looking for something new, Spanish Garnachas are the logical choice. The Tres Ojos is deliciously juicy, bursting with bright berry fruit, and finishes with a touch of earth. Easy to drink by itself as a cocktail, or serve it out at the grill with barbecue chicken.
Deep red. Lush raspberry and candied cherry aromas, with hints of roasted coffee and dark chocolate. Ripe and lush, with good weight and depth to its raspberry and strawberry flavors. No obvious tannins get in the way of the rich, sappy red fruit. An excellent value.
Silky and lush red raspberry fruits stream by on an elegant soft frame. Perfect food wine that refreshes the palate with mouthwatering, bright juicy berry flavors and lively acidity.
A delicious offering (as well as a super bargain) from this backwater region, Tres Ojos' 2003 Garnacha Old Vines was made by a cooperative, and selected by innovative importer Fran Kysela. A soft, seductive, fruity, kirsch liqueur-filled Spanish version of a Cotes du Rhone, it possesses medium body, loads of personality, and a sexy, heady palate. Enjoy it over the next 1-2 years.
The 2007 Old Vines Garnacha, sourced from 40-50 year old vines, was aged for 12 months in stainless steel. Purple-colored, the nose exhibits spice box, violets, and black cherry. On the palate it has plenty of supple-textured, succulent fruit and a finish with no hard edges. Drink it over the next three years.
This 100% old vine Grenache from the Calatayud region in Spain is one exceptional value. With juicy red fruit and soft tannins, this wine is very approachable and easy to drink. So, if you're in the hunt for a great wine without spending a lot of money, this wine is for you.
The 2004 Tres Ojos Tinto is made from 100% Garnacha old-vines (40-50 years). This delicious, fruity wine offers spice, pepper, and cherry aromas and kirsch-like flavors reminiscent of a quality Cotes du Rhone. It is a superb value.
