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!
