Bright ruby. Spicy raspberry and cherry on the nose. Plush red berry flavors deliver suave, tangy punch, with no apparent tannins. A sexy wine with very good finishing sweetness and clarity. Punches well above its price point.

If you have yet to discover Via Terra Garnacha, you’re definitely missing out! Soft and velvety, without apparent tannins and loaded with the rich blueberry, black raspberry and currant flavors that define the varietal, but with wisps of spice, mocha and smoke. Affordable enough to pop a bottle at whim, yet with enough depth to be a shining star at any special dinner or cocktail party.

Predominately Garnacha blended with a touch of peppery old vine Carignan. Briefly aged in French oak, the dark fruits are tinged with a bit of toasty spice. Violets, blackberries and a white chocolate sweetness to the fruit makes this red easy to drink on its own. Not heavy, it is also a great food companion, fresh and round with lots of blueberry and blackberry flavors.
