Villa Creek Garnacha 2013
Bright ruby-red. Spicy, mineral-accented aromas of cherry and cassis, with licorice, mineral and cracked pepper nuances in the background. Juicy, penetrating red and dark berry flavors show a refreshingly bitter edge and pick up a floral nuance with air. Closes with gentle tannic grip and very good clarity, leaving spicecake and smoky mineral notes behind. This wine reminded me a lot of a high-class example from Priorat.
