Vina Zorzal Garnacha 2019 review - WineUncorked: Wine Reviews and Tips

The label says this wine wants to capture the 'typical character of Grenache' - and it does splendidly, despite the fact that it confusingly calls their own Spanish bottling Garnacha on the front label and then uses the French name for the grape on the back. Grenache and Garnacha are the same grape variety but when grown in Spain in makes a red wine that tastes of cherries and cranberries with a large wallop of juniper berry spiciness. There's also a hint of violets to add to the aromatics. Altogether a nice wine but slightly over priced. Garnacha isn't normally seen as anything fancy and so the price should reflect this.
