Four and a half stars! This wine is lovely with a minimal amount of breathing time. Beautiful color (ruby to purple). 2006 was, apparently, a fine year for Garnacha. I bought a case of this wine as a "flyer" because a less expensive Garnacha was not available, same vintage and region. This wine, however, is even better! Smooth, with just enough bite to stand up to the most robust dinner; loaded with fruit, dry and delectable. I bought another case!
Just absolutely wonderful with minimal breathing time. Would love to have this vintage again.
This 2006 Garnacha was a total surprise to me. I ordered it on the consideration of some research performed and an adventurous spirit. Wow! It was very smooth no acids or tannins to speak about and very delicious. I pared it with a nice plate of penne pasta with spinach, diced tomatoes, garlic and oil and grilled chicken breast. Superb! The high alcohol contend is a plus. When I order this next, it will definitely be a case. Cheers!
