Abacela's 2012 Garnacha Released!
The 2012 Garnacha is released! This is one of those wines that we don't year-round stock of... It's always exciting when the new Garnacha is ready. Are you ready for it?
Winemaker NotesThe climate of our estate vineyards, being similar to Garnacha’s homeland in northern Spain, produces fruit with expressive cherry, raspberry, violet, lavender and savory aromas. The ripe fruits broadcast themselves across the palate while the tannic structure and lively acidity create this lovely wine that will improve over the next four to five years. Pairings include roasted vegetable medley with thick cut bacon.
