2009 Dragonia "Old Vine" GARNACHA (Carinena, Spain)
Absolutely pure-looking ruby. And I mean ruby, as in, take a ruby, and imagine it's a liquid. Nose is likely freshly put-up ripe raspberry jam, with a very subtle hint of clean cracked stones. Ripe and mouthfilling, with ripe raspberry fruit, good acids, full body, and a bit of soft tannin for structure. Not particularly concentrated, but fun to guzzle with dinner. B. Drink over the next year. Was $9.99 at Arrowine in Arlington. Imported by A W Direct, Inc, of Novato, CA.
