($35; 100% garnacha, from vines reportedly 80 to 100 years old) Deep ruby. Powerful, ripe, spicy scents of cherry, cured meat and cracked pepper. Very intense on the palate, with the cherry flavor framed by solid but not strident tannins. Finishes youthfully taut, with a repeating pepper note and impressive length. Give this some cellar time, or decant it for an hour. (European Cellars, Charlotte, NC)Author: Josh Raynolds
