89 points Luis Gutiérrez (Wine Advocate): "[$9 list] I tasted two vintages of each wine, the youngest of the entry-level Garnacha being the 2018 Honoro Vera Garnacha, from vines around the village of Ateca. It matured in oak for two months to keep its youth and fresh fruit. The wines from 2018 are slightly lighter and fresher and have textbook varietal aromas of berries and aromatic herbs and just a very subtle spicy touch. The palate is juicy and reveals very round tannins and a velvety texture. It's pleasant and easy to drink. A very good value. Drink: 2020-2023. (Apr 2020)"
Producer notes: "Color of intense dark cherry with a violet edge. Intense nose, dominated by ripe red fruits, raspberry, currant, together with balsamic and mineral notes. Powerful in the mouth, full-bodied, pleasantly tannic and fruity with a light spice on the finish."
