2014 Breca Old Vine Garnacha...$15.99For a tad more money, the 2014 Breca, which is 100% bush-vine Grenache planted 1900-1940, is another take on this fabulous grape that flourishes in many areas of Spain as well as Southern France. This wine spent 18 months sur lie in 500- to 600-liter French demi-muids. A deep ruby/plum color offers up notes of jammy strawberries, black cherries, raspberries, licorice, underbrush and lavender. It is deep, ripe, medium to full-bodied, heady (must be 14.5-15% natural alcohol) with a long, juicy finish. Drink it over the next 2-3 years.
Rated 90/100 Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate
