Evodia Garnacha 2017 – 750ML

WA 90

Yolanda Diaz, Jean-Marc Lafage, and Eric Solomon “discovered” a unique part of Aragon – a series of high plateaux centered around the villages of Atea and Acered. At an average elevation of 1000 meters above sea level, these vineyards are among the highest elevation sites within the province of Aragon. Even more interesting is that the soil here is pure schist, the same soil one can find in the Priorat, where Eric Solomon and Daphne Glorian make Clos Erasmus, as well as Maury, where Jean-Marc owns an estate by the name of Chateau Saint-Roch. This unique terroir and the old vines of Garnacha rooted in it, are the origins of Evodia.

Tasting Notes

This 100% Garnacha offers a lovely perfume of spice box, mineral, and wild cherry. This perfectly balanced mix of flavors lends itself to an intensely fruity wine with loads of taste, a smooth texture, and a pure, fruit-filled finish.

Serving Suggestion

Pairs well with white and red meats roasted or grilled, big game, meat casseroles and stews, complex sauces, foie gras and legumes or blue and cured cheeses.

Wine Advocate

90 points - Wine Advocate // The incredibly perfumed 2017 Evodia was true to its name, as apparently 'evodia' means fragrant in the ancient Greek language. It had been bottled for a few months when I tasted it and it was very harmonious and expressive. They have reduced quantities and raised the price a bit, going into a different segment of the market, definitely a better wine than what I tasted from 2016. It achieved almost 15% alcohol in 2017, one of the earliest harvests of the last 20 years after some spring frosts and a very dry summer. Only 20% of the volume matured in barrel, while the rest was kept in concrete vats for six months. It's very easy to drink, with unnoticeable tannins and a long, lingering finish. Super tasty and impressive for the price. 150,000 bottles were produced. -Luis Gutiérrez (December, 2018)
