Vinicola Corellana Camara Alta Navarra Garnacha 2015 Product #31418 (In Stock)
Vinicola Corellana Camara Alta Navarra Garnacha 2015 Vinicola Corellana Camara Alta Navarra Garnacha 2015

As more than one expert has said, seeing the Thomas Calder Selection note on a wine's back label is a close to a guarantee of quality as you're going to get.  Here, Tom heads south from his normal French turf to uncover a gem of a winery from Spain's Navarra region.  North of Rioja and note far from the French border, Navarra was Spain's most important wine region in the 1700-1800s, so much so that the King had to ban new vineyard plantings for fear not enough food would be grown to feed the local population!

The sandy soils of Ribera Baja, in Navarra's south, are perfect for getting traditional grapes like Garnacha fully ripe without going over the top, and that's what we have here.  Done all in tank, Garnacha grapes from 50+ year-old vines delivers direct strawberry and cherry fruit with dashes of herb and spice for extra interest.  Easy drinking, fresh, and fun, this over-delivers for the price and will be a great everyday red for casual food and entertaining.

El Escoces Volante Es Lo Que Hay Garnacha Vv 2013 El Escoces Volante Es Lo Que Hay Garnacha Vv 2013

The name translates to, "It is what it is," an expression used to shrug off worries and enjoy life today.  And this juicy, ripe, Garnacha is certainly something to enjoy.  Generous aromas and flavors of crushed raspberry and dark cherry shine in this deeply concentrated red from 40+ year-old vines.  Light tannins give enough support for food, but don't get in the way of delicious solo sipping.

Bodegas Breca Garnacha Calatayud Old Vines 2013 Product #31118 (In Stock)
Bodegas Breca Garnacha Calatayud Old Vines 2013 Bodegas Breca Garnacha Calatayud Old Vines 2013

From 70+ year-old vines; big, fleshy, and loaded with fruit.

"Made from the property's oldest vines, which were planted between 1925 and 1945.  Sexy, mineral-laced aromas of fresh red berries, candied flowers and Asian spices, with a hint of cola in the background. Sweet, concentrated and seamless, offering intense raspberry and cherry compote flavors and a touch of vanilla. Clings with impressive authority on the finish, which features supple tannins and lingering floral character. This wine was fermented in stainless steel tanks, then went through malolactic fermentation and 21 months of aging in used French oak barriques. Yields here were reportedly less than a ton per acre in this vintage."  Vinous (Reynolds) 91 points

Yalumba Bush Vine Grenache Barossa 2014 Product #30771 (In Stock)
Yalumba Bush Vine Grenache Barossa 2014 Yalumba Bush Vine Grenache Barossa 2014

From 50-100 year-old vines, this is always one of Australia's very best Grenache values.

"High-pitched aromas of fresh red berries, candied rose, blood orange and white pepper; smells a lot like an elegant Pinot Noir to me. Clean, racy and vibrant on the palate, with the redcurrant and bitter cherry flavors conveying a weightless quality. Spicy, brisk and gently tannic on the clinging finish. This distinctly graceful wine is extremely easy to drink now but it should age nicely on its balance. These vines were reportedly planted between 1898 and 1973."  Vinous (Reynolds) 90 points

"Pale garnet colored with a hint of purple, the 2014 Grenache Old Bush Vine offers enticing red cherry and raspberry preserves notes accented with suggestions of cinnamon stick, orange peel, red roses and white pepper. Medium-bodied and beautifully delicate in the mouth, it sure doesn't scrimp on the flavor, filling the palate with warm red berries and baking spice cushioned with soft tannins and finishing with great length."Wine Advocate 90+ points
