Bodegas Breca 2012

Breca is a 100% Grenacha wine from the region of Caltayud region in northeast Spain.  The vines are considered "old vine" since they were planted 70 to 90 years ago.  The wine is aged 21 months in French oak casks and the wine has an alcohol content of 15.5%.

This is a medium bodied, bright, fruit forward wine with a ton of flavor.  The flavors run from dark cherry to dark berry with some minerality and even a hint of chocolate.  At times, I sensed some cola.  The tannins and alcohol are well balanced with the fruit.  This is a wonderfully enjoyable wine.

My local Costco is selling this wine for $10.99 and down the street, Total Wines has it for $14.99.

SC Wine Joe rating = 91 points
