Review: 2011 Alto Cinco Garnacha

alto cincoA lively wine from the Cariñena region in the north of Spain, this 94% Garnacha/6% Tempranillo bottling is loaded with character. Fresh fruit is at the core, with some tar and licorice notes underpinning it, particularly on the nose. Extended time with air brings out more earth and a rubber-like character. The finish remains fresh and fruity, but I suggest drinking this one while it’s young.
