2011HerenciaAltesRed2011 Herencia Altes, Garnatxa Nerga, Spanish Red.
This wine is absolutely delicious and rewarding with fruit, texture, spice and length, and best of all it is a steal! Eric Solomon imports this wine and it should be readily available as it has just come out, and their white is just as good, so be sure to check them out. The 2011 Herencia Altes Garnatxa Nerga, made from Grenache is loaded with black and red fruits, pepper, kirsch and mineral notes starting with dried flowers, lavender and truffle it explodes on the palate with raspberry, boysenberry, pomegranate and plum fruits while dusty earth, spice and garrigue notes add complexity. It would be hard to not love this wine at twice the price, and fans of Gigondas should really delight in this wines similar characteristics, even though it is a pure Spanish gem.
