Atteca Garnacha 2009, Grenache Wine

Atteca Garnacha 2009, Grenache Wine

Origin: Spain - Calatayud
Characteristics: Bright black cherry fruit on the nose with a touch of...graham cracker? (Paul says gingerbread - probably molasses). The palate shows the same bright black cherry fruit with a nice oak spice to the finish. Rich, full, and bright. 100% garnacha. 15% Alc.
- wine tasting note by DYB, 1/6/12

From 3000 feet in Calatayud is this truly old Garnacha planted to steep gravelly slopes over 100 years ago! Beautiful, clear, and bright, the nose is fragrant of raspberries and blueberries and other taut ripened fruit with notes of sassafras, that swell and throb on the palate –this is rich with fine silty tannins and a finish that leaves your tongue smooth and cool. A great glass of wine versatile for all sorts of menus.

Aia Vecchia Lagone IGT 2010 
Characteristics: On the same hill as Sassicaia just below, this red is a stunning value –STUNNING! Spicy and woodsy brambly fruit tug on the palate in a nervy tension of juicy acids and fine knit tannins. Big without over extraction, expansive without any doughnut holes, this is a complete Super Tuscan for a song considering its premier quality.

Aldo Conterno Barolo Romirasco 2004 
Characteristics: SPECIES OF VINE: Nebbiolo, Michet and Lampia varieties.
VINEYARD: “Romirasco” vineyard, in Bussia (Monforte d'Alba)
HARVEST: manual, with grapes selection in the vineyard.
TIME OF HARVEST: mid-October.
VINIFICATION: red, with skin soaking inside stainless steel vats.
VINIFICATION TIME: the must stays on contact with the skins for 15 days: during this time the alcoholic VINIFICATION usually gets fully complete, and the wine is then drawn off.
VINIFICATION TEMPERATURES: changeable, with highest peaks of 32 degrees centigrades.
CELLAR REFINING: the new wine remains inside stainless steel vats for 3 to 5 months, and it is periodically transferred before being put into big Slavonian oak barrels, where it is left ageing for 28 to 30 months; then, it will be bottled.
NOTES: the vineyard “Romirasco” is about 50-55 years old and its vines are replanted from time to time. The main variety of Nebbiolo is Lampia and its rootstock is Rupestris du Lot.

Angel's Secret Petite Sirah 2010 
Characteristics: This wine shows all the characteristics of great Petite Sirah. Lush dark berries, balanced fruit and complex yet mild tannins. The addition of merlot adds a soft component to the wine and lends to a smooth supple finish.

Riedel 'O' Syrah/Shiraz 2 packs
Description: Riedel "O" is the new take on the wine tumbler. The tumbler, used for centuries as an all-round drinking vessel, is now turned into a sophisticated wine accessory. In short: "O" is the ideal glass for every day use and for every occasion. Without stems to knock into or over, the "O" is pet-proof and kid-friendly, meaning fewer glasses to replace down the line.

The designs of "O" are based on the benchmark shapes of Riedel Vinum. For the first time in glass history the design parameters such as shape of tumbler, size and diameter of rim, have been finely-tuned to enhance the world's most important grape varietals. The price range for the non lead machine-blown glass series is half the price of Riedel Vinum glasses.

It fits in every dishwasher, picnic basket, minibar or small kitchen. Broken stems are a thing of the past.

Sold in packs of 2

For the following Varietals:
Shiraz or Syrah
