Spanish SIX-PACK Summer Sampler - WH
Val De Meigas, Albarino Rias Baixas 2022 (Spain) TWO BOTTLES: Straw yellow in color with an intense bouquet of florals and subtle fruity undertones. Smooth on the palate, this wine is the perfect companion to a variety of foods.
WHAT IS ALBARINO?
Albarino (Alvarinho) (“alba-reen-yo”) is a delightfully refreshing coastal white that grows on the Iberian Peninsula. It’s loved for its rich stone fruit flavors, a hint of salinity, and zippy acidity.
Some of the oldest living vines in the world are Albariño vines and are up to 300 years old.
Coster Dels Oliviers, Priorat (Red Wine) 2018 (Spain) TWO BOTTLES: A new custom cuvée for Eric Solomon. Coster dels Olivers is a blend of 60% Carinyena, 30% Garnatxa, and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon grown on slate soils by the Sangenis family of Porrera. A combination of younger vine fruit, a relatively cooler northwestern exposure of the vineyards, a high percentage of Carinyena, and 12 months of aging in well-seasoned French and Hungarian oak barrels, ensures a brighter and juicier style of Priorat made for immediate enjoyment.
Jeb Dunnuck, 92 Points: Based largely on Carignan, with 30% Garnacha and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2018 Priorat has a big, smoky nose of mulled red and black fruits, graphite, flowers, and new leather. This carries to a medium to full-bodied wine with terrific tannins (especially for Carignan), a balanced, elegant texture, no hard edges, and a great finish.
WHAT IS PRIORAT?
PRIORAT is a region, located in the hills southwest of Barcelona with terraced vineyards and slate soils producing dry red blends, high in both alcohol and tannins, with a thick texture that include flavors of blackberry, chocolate, and licorice.
Alto Moncayo Veraton Garnacha 2018 (Spain) TWO BOTTLES: It is a wine with an attractive collection of balsamic notes, of chocolate and black fruits, very warm in the mouth and an extremely pleasant finish.
VINOUS 93 Points: Brilliant purple. Intensely perfumed, spice-tinged black and blue fruits, vanilla, candied flowers and cola on the nose, along with a smoky element that builds with air. Broad and fleshy on entry, offering juicy cherry cola, blueberry and mocha flavors sharpened by a jolt of spicy white pepper. Strongly echoes the blue fruit and spice notes on the very long, focused finish, which features lingering floral and mineral flourishes.
James Suckling 92 Points: A 100% Garnacha with aromas of dark cherries, plums, raisins, sweet spices and cigar box. It’s full-bodied with chewy tannins. Rich, ripe and velvety with a flavorful, spicy finish. Drink now or hold.
WHAT IS GANACHA?
Grenache or Garnacha is one of the most widely planted red wine grape varieties in the world. It ripens late, so it needs hot, dry conditions such as those found in Spain, where the grape is believed originated. - WIKIPEDIA
