On the palate, dense, smoke-tinged flavors of bitter cherry and blackberry are complicated by hints of peppery spice, cocoa powder and licorice.

  • wa92"The 2013 Es Lo Que Hay wears the subtitle Garnacha Viñas Viejas from old plots on slate soils in the zone of Alarba-Acered in Calatayud, with some Syrah thrown into the fermentation tanks. It fermented in open concrete tanks and aged in underground concrete vats with lees. The nose mixes black fruit with notes of licorice and Mediterranean herbs. This is juicy, with good density, fine tannins and very good freshness provided by the slate soils and the conditions of the year. It has a very tasty finish. This has a lot more freshness than a couple of vintages ago. - Luis Gutiérrez"

Its spicy, fruity expression contrasts with the earthier character the wine has in France, where the grape is known as grenache. The Es Lo Que Hay has that racy Spanish character, with some nice depth and structure to add interest. - Dave McIntyre"
