Tasting Notes

An excellent Spanish red from the Campo de Borja region, made from of old-vine Garnacha. Dark, fresh and – no surprise – deliciously "grapey" on the palate. Light, silky tannins make for a very pleasant finish. Try it with grilled fare for a failsafe pairing.

Tannins bring to mind the dark, thick skins of the Syrah grape. They barely fill your mouth before bright acidity whips them away, leaving a tickle in your cheeks. This is an impressive wine at this price. An apéritif for sure—after a few sips, my mind did wander to a dark chocolate mousse studded with tart raspberries.

The distinguished Châteauneuf-du-Pape and Gigondas appellations are both...
