Winemaker's Notes

(From «nv» Vintage) EVODIA is an exciting project in the Denominacion de Origen Calatayud, hailed as one of Spain’s most progressive and promising wine growing regions. Calatayud is distinguished by its prevalence of high elevation vineyards planted to the Garnacha variety – in fact, the highest in the entire country. The vineyards surrounding the small town of Atea reach upwards of 3000 feet – the highest within the DO.

Supple in texture, offering sweet red fruit flavors and showing no rough edges. A smoky note comes up with air, adding complexity to a nicely persistent, red berry-dominated finish. Extremely easy to drink, and offering excellent depth and clarity for the money."

    the '08 seems a bit young but very drinkable at the price point
