Herencia Altes 2015 (Spain: Terra Alta)

Name Herencia Altes 2015
Varietal Garnaxta Negra
Region Spain: Terra Alta
Notes Eric Solomon partnered with Spaniard Nuria Altes to produce this remarkable, cool-climate, high-altitude Grenache with a Pinot Noir-like personality. These are low yielding vines, picked when the grapes were at optimal ripeness without losing acidity. This is an outstanding red wine for the money. "Black cherry, olive, licorice and light tar notes mingle in this lively red. Fresh acidity and light tannins lend this just enough structure, but the focus is on the fruit. Drink now. 25,000 cases made." (Wine Spectator)
