Menguante Garnacha is produced from grapes that have been grown on 80 to 100 year old vines. The subdued dark fruit and mineral aromas carry into the lush, plum flavors with ripe chewy tannins. The persistent finish features balanced acidity and sweet fruit tannins. Serve at room temperature.
The purple-colored 2008 Menguante Garnacha was sourced from vines averaging 80 years of age and aged for 5 months in French oak. It sports an inviting nose of cedar, tobacco, cinnamon, clove, and cherry. On the palate it displays outstanding concentration, layers of savory fruit, and plenty of volume. It has the structure to evolve for 1-2 years but is approachable now. It is a great value.
