Walking into the 2011 Garnacha blending sessions I had ideas of what I wanted; purity of fruit, awesome aromatics, structure for some cellaring and most of all fun to drink.  Protocol was similar to the 2010-a judicious amount of whole clusters (75%) for aromatics and structure, tank aging for purity, and a dollop of oak to broaden the palate.   The nose shows notes of rose petals, licorice, limestone dust, kirsch, and pomegranate.  The palate carries well-balanced tannins filled with a hint of white pepper, berry pie, and red heart plum.  The finish is elegant with a sound tannin structure.  This will give the 2010 a run for its money...  Drink 2014-2024
