Garnacha is the Spanish version of Grenache, a red wine that is immediately recognizable for its flavors of ripe fruit and spice. Buscado Garnacha produces intense and pleasant aromas of licorice and wild berries with slight mineral undertones. Flavors of ripe red fruit, fresh thyme and hints of minerals linger on the finish of this silky and full-bodied Spanish Garnacha.
Viña Albali Crianza
Viña Albali Crianza is made exclusively from Tempranillo grapes and is aged longer than the average Crianza, resulting in a Spanish red with an intense ruby color, and complex aromas of ripe red berry fruit, oak and spices. This luscious red is pleasant and soft on the palate with a good tannic expression and a long finish.
El Portal Red Blend
Both Zinfandel and Merlot are popular grapes on their own, and this combination with Syrah proves that the sum can be greater than its parts. In this smooth and ripe-flavored red, blackberry and cherry aromas are joined by notes of black currant, plum, spice, and violet. Touches of sweet tobacco and spice accentuate the fruit-forward flavor, making El Portal Red Blend very food friendly.
