What Does It Taste Like?

Yasa is made from 100% old vines Garnacha grapes (40 years old on average).  Yasa is a term used in southern Rioja and northern Aragon (Calatayud) which means a dry stream bed. This is a very elegant and complex wine offering blackberry, smoky and peppery aromas. Rich and smooth on the palate with fruity flavors and a long finish. This is a very good value from Calatayud and an ideal companion to game, roasted meats and cured cheeses.

"100 percent Garnacha from 40-year-old vines. Dark ruby color with aromas of spicy dark plum and herb spice. Attacks soft and velvety with a tasty mélange of dark red fruits. Very flavorful, nicely balanced, and an exceptional value."
