90 Pts Josh Raynolds - International Wine Cellar

From the Critics:

  • "Dark purple. Cassis and dark cherry on the nose, with smoked meat and black cardamom adding depth and a serious mien. A weighty, structured blend with sweet dark berry compote flavors and supple tannins adding support. Surprisingly lively on the finish, which repeats the dark berry qualities and leaves a zesty, peppery note behind. This is an outstanding value but needs some air to show its best." -90 points- Josh Raynolds- International Wine Cellar

    WINERY:
    "Formed in 2001 Santa Quiteria's production is focused on a type of Grenache known as Garnacha Tintorera. Other grape varieties used, but to a much lesser extent, are Tempranillo, Syrah, Cabernet and Petit Verdot. The site of the vineyards is at an altitude of between 900 and 1100 meters, which has proven ideal for this special clone of Grenache." -Importer

    ALMANSA D.O.
    "The region is on the border covering portions of Alicante, Valencia and Murcia. Vineyards were developed here in the 16th Century. The majority of production was shipped to other regions for blending as the wines had copious color and good structure."

    "Climate: Extreme continental climate with summer temperatures reaching over 100 and winter temperatures falling to the teens in the winter. Rain averages a scant 14 inches a year."

    "Soil: Soils are composed of limestone, calcerous soils and some with combinations of clay and limestone."

    "Grape Varities: Garnacha Tintorera (aka Alicante 'Bouschet') and Monastrell account for the majority of planted vines. These produce dark, ripe and intensely flavored wines. Garnacha Tintorera is one of the very few grapes that has colored flesh and consequently colored juice immediately upon harvest." -Importer

    This received 85 points by Jay Miller of the Wine Advocate and 82 points in the Wine Spectator. - 90 Pts Josh Raynolds - International Wine Cellar
