2008 Campos de Luz Garnacha

The 2008 Campos de Luz Garnacha is made from 100% old vine Garnacha (Grenache) grown in the Cariñena D.O. in Spain's Aragon region. Campos de Luz is made by Bodegas Esteban Martin and is located in the village of Alfamen in Aragon, about 50 km south-east of Zaragoza and about 380 km north-east from Madrid.

On the bouquet I get aromas of cranberry sauce, black raspberry, soil, plum, concrete, and mineral. There is a slight aroma of a metallic nature that I can't quite pinpoint, but I thought I would mention it as well.

On the palate the wine is quite mouth coating, although it's not thick or viscous, but just penetrating. I get flavors of black cherry, pomegranate, black plum, and a touch of marion berry. The texture is still perplexing to me and I think it may be a touch grainy or somewhat unfiltered.

This is nice wine and has pretty good depth but lacks just a touch of polish to be considered great. 87 points
