Garnacha (gar-NA-chah) was born in Spain, but is now known to most of the world as Grenache - think Rhone style wines. Today, Garnacha is the most widely planted red wine grape in Spain. A terrific food wine, Tapeña Garnacha is spicy and seductive, with a lovely garnet color and lingering flavors.
Its brilliant violet hue and seductive nose whisper ‘try me, now' as you bring the wine to your lips. In the mouth, there is a rush of dark fruit with an underlying bright spice, including hints of rosemary, thyme and just a trace of sage. As the wine opens on the palate there is an intense minerality. Tapeña Garnacha is full- bodied, but still lively, with rounded tannins which combine with the fruit to produce a velvet finish.
