Winemaker's Notes

"The 2002 Garnacha is fashioned from 75-year old Grenache vines planted on pure slate. Sixty percent was aged in tank, and 40% in neutral wood foudres. There are 20,000 cases of this offering, which may be the greatest wine value I have ever tasted. Deep ruby/purple-colored, with a gorgeous nose of kirsch liqueur intermixed with melted licorice and white flowers, this deep, medium to full-bodied, fruit-driven, sumptuously-textured 2002 is loaded. It should drink well for 3-4 years, possibly longer."
"One cannot bestow enough kudos on importer Eric Solomon for unearthing these treasures."

I rarely cellar bottles, but this was worth it! 2002 vintage, purchased in 2004 for $9.99. Saw the rating of 91 points and decided to cellar it. Opened it this week and oh! the joy of delectability! I will definitely buy and cellar a lot more of the highly-rated current vintages. I'm not a picky drinker and do not spend a lot on any alcohol, but this experience has changed my wine habits forever. Try the wine, the cellaring and enjoy.
