(Spain – Mentrida, 14,5%)
Bodegas Jiménez-Landi ~ El Reventon 2007
Maybe this bottle was not quite ok. Cork influence is possible (my Ataulfos 2009 was horrible corked). Screwers for the win! But more or less the wine (100% Garnacha) showed what it has to offer.
The El Reventon is an extreme modern interpretation of the Garnacha grape. Dominating overriped fruit. Boundless berries and black cherries. A sweet and warming character with chocolate and cacao. Aside a very good cool minerality and immense flavor (brown bread crust). A leading benchmark in his style.
