2016 GARNACHA, MAGNUM

(50% whole clusters and 50% large new French oak casks) Deep bright-rimmed ruby. Heady, mineral-accented raspberry and cherry scents are complicated by suggestions of Asian spices and candied lavender. Lush, palate-staining red and dark berry and floral pastille flavors convey a suave blend of power and vivacity. Finishes spicy, broad and very long, with fine-grained tannins folding quickly into the plush, sweet fruit. 93pts

The 2016 Garnacha is a no-brainer (just about year in, year out) and has loads of charm and character in its kirsch and blackberry fruits, spice, and garrigue-like aromas and flavors. It has tons of sweet fruit, a seamless texture, and is a joy to drink. This cuvée is 100% Grenache that spent 14 months in 50% new barrels. 92pts
