A blend of 85% Garnacha Tinta, 5% Carinena, 5% Morenillo and 5% Syrah. Semi translucent bright red colour with a light red hue. A mix of sour and red cherry scents greet the nostrils followed by some fresh herb, stalk, graphite and white pepper notes. Fresh and focused, the light, elegant palate features crunchy red cherry as well as cranberry and sour cherry fruits over stony mineral, earthy fresh herb and pepper characters. Lively acidity and slightly chalky tannins. Finishes taut and snappy.
Drink over the next 3-4 years.

Other Reviews….
I also tasted two vintages of the entry-level red. The 2021 GR-10 Tinto was produced with 85% Garnacha and 15% Cariñena. which was fermented with full clusters and matured in barrels of different sizes and one 4,200-liter oak vat for seven months. It has 13.5% alcohol and very good freshness. There's more Cariñena in this 2021 than in the 2020, and it has a lighter color—they used a vineyard that wasn't used in 2020, and it delivers lighter-colored wines. This is surprisingly harmonious and bright. It's fine-boned, medium-bodied and zippy, though maybe the tannins are not as perfect as those of the 2020, and it has some grip; but this comes through as very harmonious and elegant. A bargain! Drink 2023-2028.
