    Winemaker's Notes:

    This peculiar soil and climate of Campo de Borja give this wine a special character. The grapes come from the best hillside vineyards planted with the oldest Garnacha vines.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2008 Granate is old vine Garnacha but was aged for 10 months in new French oak. A glass-coating opaque purple color, it delivers an alluring nose of smoke, Asian spices, lavender, and black cherry. This leads to a round, opulent, concentrated Garnacha that is all about pleasure. Drink this outstanding value over the next 6 years.

    Inky ruby. Intense, floral-accented aromas of redcurrant, raspberry and Asian spices; smells like pinot to me. Bright, sharply focused red fruit flavors stain the palate, lifted by a spicy note. Very fresh (this has a pH of 3.4), with very good finishing clarity and length. These vines sit at 650 to 700 meters altitude, which no doubt contributes to the fruit's brightness.
