    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2011 Garnacha de Fuego, a 100% Grenache cuvee, was aged in both stainless steel and neutral French oak. There are 10,000 cases for the United States. This amazing wine boasts a dark ruby/purple color along with a sweet kiss of jammy black cherries intertwined with crushed rock notes that give the wine an undeniable minerality. As it hits the palate, a full-bodied, voluptuous texture takes hold and the flavor profile moves towards blacker fruits (ripe raspberries and black currants) intermixed with camphor and forest floor. This full-bodied, rich, glycerin-filled effort should drink well for 4-5 years, perhaps longer.

    Many notes of dark berries, chocolate, tobacco, pepper and spice. Wife said it had some "Christmas" notes... apples and cinnamon. Truly great wine for $8.99. Best wine I've ever tasted under $10. Highly recommended.

    better than I expected. Bigger a little spice, but a lot of fruit and a big finish. By far the best wine I have ever had under $10, maybe the best under $20. Should benefit from short term cellaring.

    Truly yummy. Slightly sweet. Great to drink on it's own.

    3, maybe 3.5 stars. Much better on night one, night two was definitely off.

    Straight out of the bottle, it's a little off balance. Even though it's still young, let it decant an hour or so before tasting. It helps.

    Much touted, but a bit sweet and almost syrupy for my taste.
