Bodegas Breca 2010 Old Vines Garnacha (Calatayud DO) Aragon - Spain
Availability: Private wine shops and BCLDB stores
Date Tasted: January 31st, 2014
Tasting Notes: At first sniff, you might think you're about to dive into a fine Port due to the intense and matured, spicy-plum, sweet-incense and anise aromas seeping from the glass. This 100% Garnacha (Grenache) is sourced from vineyards ranging from 70-100 years old and offers an equally intense palate where the spicy-plum profile continues supported by cherry-cola, vanilla-bean and mineral notes.
Though powerful and layered with meaty tannins and savoury flavours, the body doesn't feel weighted down or thick thanks to well-balanced acidity and a refined texture. Tasting beautifully now, yet, should develop further in the bottle over the next 2-3 years. Drink 2014-2018+.
