K&L Notes

100% garnaxta negra from the small DO of Terra Alta in southeastern Catalunya, near the borders of Aragon and Valencia. Known locally as 'pañal,' the soils here are predominantly sandy clay with some calcareous content, imparting a distintive mineral character to the the wines. This pure, juicy, spicy garnaxta gets its depth from a foundation of fruit from very old garnaxta bush vines, which is balanced by the the youthful intensity of younger vine fruit. Continental winds from the north and oceanic breezes from the east temper this region's sunny Mediterranean climate, prolonging the growing season, promoting concentration, and preserving freshness.

    This humbly priced Garnacha is an overachiever. Having enjoyed the accompanying Garnacha Blanca from this Terra Alta winery (also highly recommended by the way!) I can't say I'm surprised by how good this is for the money. It shows a surprisingly rich fruity character, initially showing a ripeness suggesting fig paste; with air the wine shows increasing freshness with a lovely, wild thyme and rosemary character (the so-called wild herbs or "Garrigue" of southern France also grow over much of Spain). For the price, this is a tough one to beat for an everyday, characterful red.
