Grenache is a varietal grown around the world and in the country of Spain, it goes by the name Garnacha. Each country where Grenache is grown, it expresses the unique terroir and shows different flavor profiles. For Spain and specifically the grapes in 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 expression of Garnacha.
