Editorial Reviews for Tres Ojos Garnacha
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. 91pts
Tres Ojos old vines garnacha 2007. $9.99 Spain, 14.5% alcohol. Clear, purple, dark intensity. Medium aroma intensity, Aromas of tobacco, leather and charred wood, dark fruits. Medium acidity and moderate tannins. rough texture, Not my favorite, ok
Decent for the price. A bit too much sediment, but alright.
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.
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

The 2009 Tinto is made of up of 100% old-vine Garnacha (40- to 50-year-old vines) fermented and aged for 12 months in stainless steel. Raspberries, cherries, spice box, and white pepper make up the nose of this savory, juicy wine. Nicely proportioned and moderately lengthy in the finish, it will provide enjoyment over the next 2–3 years. It is a solid value.
Vivid purple. Fresh dark berry aromas offer good straightforward, jammy appeal. Light-bodied raspberry and blackberry flavors become more bitter with air and pick up a zesty peppery quality. Brisk and refreshing wine with good finishing cut and decent persistence. This is a solid value.

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.
Pale reddish-maroon in color and medium-bodied. Made from 100% Garnacha grapes, this is as good a value as you will find in Spanish reds. The nose is lively and the ripe fruit (raspberry, strawberry) lends a touch of sweetness that is countered by black pepper and earthiness on the finish. After many different tastings, it has yet to disappoint.
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.
