A zippy 2016 Envinate, Albahra


The 2016 Viticultores Emilio Ramirez y Envinate, Albahra, Almansa is a zippy, textured, and slightly earthy wine which proves there are interesting wines under $20 per bottle.  The fruit comes from 30 year old vines located at the high altitude of 800 meters which were fermented with indigenous yeast and raised in cement.  I find this vintage more structured than the 2015, so you may enjoy this wine over the next few years.  You can grab a bottle at MacArthur Beverages.

2016 Viticultores Emilio Ramirez y Envinate, Albahra, Almansa – $18
A Jose Pastor Selections imported by Llaurador Wines. This wine is 100% Grenache fermented and raised in cement. Alcohol 13.5%.  There is a zippy, tart and bright start of red fruit, polished wood, and hints of earth underneath.  The flavors become defined as cranberry red and black fruit.  There are fine, yet assertive tannins which add to a texture which persists on the gums into the aftertaste.  It even rounds out a bit with air.  *** Now 2021?
