Bodegas Pinord Diorama D.O. Terra Alta Garnatxa Negra 2010 (Organic)
$24.00 RETAIL PRICE
Big, brooding Penedes grenache at peak complexity? That’s tough to find, ladies and gentlemen! Yet here it is: a huge wine without an insufferable ego. Earthiness sans chocolatey cocoa-puffed chest. Some spice cake, sultana raisins, and darker fruit like licorice and caramel round out the taste experience, while a curious – and absolutely compelling – dollop of marmalade enters at the very end. This is big red that has apparently travelled to the Banda Islands: big body, great acid and alcohol support, but with extremely nuanced spices that seal the deal on a beautiful wine.
