Altovinum Evodia, Calatayud, Spain, 2007 Old Vine Garnacha, $6.99-$11.99, 90 points, appears almost burgundy red with a touch of pomegranate and a broad clear rim. Cedar dominates the aroma, but not far behind are plum, coffee and cinnamon notes.
The medium-plus body carries good acidity and mild-plus tannin along with the bright flavors of tangy-tart red cherry and plum which transitioned well through the finish of escalating coffee and spice notes.
QPR is extremely high, and should definitely be on my list of best value red wines!
