Rioja

2005 Bodegas Tintoralba SCL Higueruela Grenache, Almansa

Mostly Garnacha (with 12% Syrah), this Mediterranean-styled wine is locked and loaded on the nose: There’s a ton of mineral, sunshine and earthy blackberry aromas. The palate is full with cherry and raspberry, and the acidity is strong enough to keep the wine stable. In the end it’s almost lean and perky." (12/15/2007) Value simply oozes from this rich red. —Wine Enthusiast
