Wine Style Guide

Light & Fruity

Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.

Smooth & Supple

Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.

Earthy & Spicy

Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.

Big & Bold

Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.

Alcohol By Volume: 15.0%

Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

Evodia, sourcing fruit from high elevation vineyards in the village of Atea, from the Greek word for aroma.

100% old vine Garnacha

Critical Acclaim

"Sexy, high-pitched aromas of strawberry preserves, black raspberry, minerals and pungent flowers. Concentrated but not at all heavy; sweet raspberry and blackberry flavors are lifted by a hint of violet. Very suave, especially at this price; finishes with silky tannins and excellent clarity. No jamminess here, which is pretty rare for inexpensive garnacha. These vines are reportedly planted at 850 to 1,100 meters altitude on slate and are more than 100 years old."

Great berry, mineral, floral, and earth tones. Silky-smooth going down, no harshness - old vine grenache - yummy!

My initial reaction was Wow this wine has A LOT of flavor. After a few more sips, I think the wine is light and fruity but with earthy-spicy flavors. Conclusion? I'd get a case of this for sure.

This wine is a great sipping wine with subtle flavors that mesh very well together. Slightly floral at first, but then it melts into a smooth warming finish. Definitely will buy again.

This is a great intro to Grenache wine. For the price a no brainer. Spicy and tangy fruit on the nose and palate. Surprisingly smooth with out the harsh heat of many wines at this price.
