PEGASO "Zeta" 2016

(Sierra de Gredos, Castilla y Leon, Spain) $21

When garnacha (grenache) is good, it is very very good. In fact, it whirls with fantastic cherry flavors, from grenadine to kirsch to the best cherry preserves you ever had in your life. Few wines are this effusively fruity and yet taste sophisticated, spicy, and minerally at the same time. There’s no tannin to contend with here, just pure rich deliciousness (for $4 a glass!). The Sierra de Gredos are mountains of slate and granite in the center of Spain. Viticulture here is ancient, and many of the vines are both old and head pruned (without trellising). (14.5% abv)
