2011 Tres Ojos Old Vine Garnacha Tinto Calatayud - BTYH - Very Good +

bigger than your head logo 250"Garnacha 2011 is a blend of 85 percent garnacha (grenache) grapes, seven percent each cabernet sauvignon and tempranillo and one percent syrah; made all in stainless steel, it sees no oak, The color is deep ruby with a mulberry tinge; first your nose picks up notes of tar, black olives, smoked tea, followed by scents of spiced and macerated blackberries, blueberries and plums, the whole effect having a slight balsamic cast. Plenty of grip keeps dusty tannins on the palate in support of dense black and blue fruit flavors permeated by hints of bitter chocolate, lavender and graphite; vibrant acidity keep the wine alert and lively. 14.5 percent alcohol. Drink now through 2015 with grilled leg of lamb, braised short ribs, hearty stews. Very Good+. About $10, so Buy by the Case."

bti"Black ruby color. Herbal aromas and flavors of peppercorn herb rub and dried berries with a silky, crisp, dry-yet-fruity body and a polished, interesting, breezy spiced melon, kiwi, nuts, and sandalwood finish with a suggestion of oak. A pleasant, easy drinking Spanish red that will cover a lot of bases."

2012 Tres Ojos Old Vine Garnacha Tinto Calatayud - 88 PTS - WA

wa88"The 2012 Tres Ojos Garnacha contains 15% Tempranillo (I wonder why), and unoaked cuvée of 200,000 bottles that matures in vat for at least seven months before bottling. Of course the 200,000 bottles are not bottled at once, so you might find some differences from lot to lot; what I tasted was a very honest, fresh and fruit-driven red with aromas of cherries, garrigue and thyme with a medium-bodied palate, some weight and tannins that would do better with food. This is a red that sells for a song. - Luis Gutierrez"
