2020 Altovinum Evodia Old Vines Garnacha

Spain | Garnacha
"Young, fresh, and juicy! Another knockout red from the joint venture of Eric Solomon and Jean Marc Lafage. A downright steal for $11."
- Staff Note, Fall Favorite
"The very young and juicy 2020 Evodia comes from a year with more rain than average and moderately warm temperatures that resulted in an early harvest of a generous crop that delivered wines of lower alcohol (14.5%) and more freshness. It fermented with some 20% full clusters and had a very soft vinification and extraction with no pump-overs. This is always very aromatic (it's what the name means), and in 2020 it's even paler and more ethereal then the 2019 that was already impressive and quite a change from previous vintages and other wines from the cooperative. Only 20% of the volume matured in oak and the wine is not oaky at all and has contained ripeness and very light extraction. This is bright and elegant, fresh and very pleasant to drink. Incredible for the price."
