GARNACHA 2015 DO La Mancha
Vintage Assessments Tasting Note Producer CIMAL
The LCBO Vintages Catalogue says 2016 but in fact it is a REPEAT of the 2015 that was shipped on July 20, 2019! Extremely deep intense purple colour. Slightly spicy, gently smoky, cedary, baked plum nose. Dry, medium bodied, spicy, fairly juicy, plummy flavours with a lingering, quite well structured, fairly juicy, tangy finish. Has 14% alcohol and now 6 g/L residual sugar with lot number L0809 on the back label. Meanwhile, you can safely ignore the two-year-old 92-point tasting note appearing in the Vintages Catalogue, In fact, you can even ignore the previous note for the 2015 which appears here!
