(2005 Vintage) Garnacha: Jay Miller, Wine Advocate 92 "The 2005 Santa Cruz is sourced from a single vineyard of the same name. The vineyard is 100% Garnacha with vines ranging from 80-100 years of age. Opaque purple-colored, it reveals a slightly roasted bouquet with kirsch liqueur notes as well as fragrant black cherry and black raspberry. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied (16.5% alcohol), powerful, well-balanced, and long."
Decanter(2005 Vintage) Rating: 4/5 - As reviewed by Decanter. Some spice, marshmallow, brambly fruit; good, spicy, big fruit, good length.
