Mini-Review – Herencia Altés 2011 Garnacha Negra

Want a rich, delicious wine that will satisfy your palate and your wallet?  If so, you may want to read on!  Herencia Altés 2011 Garnacha Negra is 100% Garnacha from the Terra Alta region of Spain.  Although it is young, it is totally approachable and ready to be sipped. 

This dark garnet, mouth-staining wine has aromas of red cherries, cocoa, and minerals.  The palate is juicy and rich.  There are indulgent, sweet tastes of red berries, cherries, anise, and pepper with silky tannins.  A terrific value and a very tasty wine!  Pair with grilled meats or dark chocolate. (B+, $12, 14%)
