Fun Grenache from Envinate
Envinate not only produces wines from the Canary Islands but from the mainland as well. When I first opened the 2015 Viticultores Emilio Ramirez y Envinate, Albahra, Almansa I was immediately reminded of Des Tours. This impression lasted for 15 minutes or so before the wine morphed from that ethereal ripeness to a dry, focused, mineral wine. It is definitely worth checking out this unique wine. This wine is available at MacArthur Beverages.

A Jose Pastor Selections imported by Llaurador Wines. This wine is 100% Grenache fermented and raised in cement. Alcohol 13.5%. This is a textured, lively wine which begins with ethereal ripe flavors. With air it becomes a dry, focused, mineral wine to drink over the next few years. *** Now – 2020.
