    Winemaker's Notes:

    The "La Granacha Signarques" is produced from 80+ year-old vines, harvested at 35 hl/ha and under, grapes are de-stemmed and vinified using all natural yeasts. Bottled with no filtration or fining.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The old vine offering of 100% Grenache, the 2008 La Granacha Signargues, is super. Like its sibling, it was made and bottled without any SO2, a rarity. Furthermore, these vineyards are organically farmed. Sexy black fruit and floral notes are followed by a deep, full-bodied wine displaying plenty of kirsch, underbrush, and loamy soil notes. Good purity, a full-bodied texture, deliciously ripe fruit, and a seamless style make for a sensational bargain-priced wine that should drink well for 2-3 years.

    This is a tough bottle of wine to score if you are a beginner! It was a little bit vague at the beginning. However, I got it eventually. This wine clearly demonstrates when someone says granacha is very (versatile)! It pairs very well with almost everything. On the nose, surprisingly, it is semi old world! I would say 72% old world and 28% new world! Yes, it smells like dry leafs, a hint of dirt, some red-black fruits, a little hint of strawberry (which is Granacha-like). Midpalate, (very) consistent to what I get on the nose! Finish, the opposite of what I get on the nose! Yes, there are some red fruits going on, a hint of (cranberry)!, strawberry, and a little bit of dried fruits. However, somehow it has a hint of fake flavor. But this wine is balanced! It is no way full-boded! I would say medium-boded and (polished) tannins. I am 89+ on this effort. I really wanted to give it 90 pts but it got that little hint of fake flavor, just a little hint! For $15, I think it is decently priced. Happy drinking!
