Tasting Notes, etc.:
Gaznata Finca Mariano is a very elegant, bright Garnacha that shows off the potential and elegance of single vineyard Garnachas from the very cold, windy village of El Barraco. The wine has a bright cherry colour and is very elegant and expressive on the nose with flowers and cherry gum drops... a pretty wine, with complexity. Very dry, with soft tannin and a big explosion of red raspberries, cherries, minerality, asian 5 spice, vanilla and mountain herbs as the wine glides across your palate. You are left with a long and luscious layer of fruit, spice and vanilla on the finish.
