91 points "The 2002 Garnacha is fashioned from 75-year old Grenache vines planted on pure slate. Sixty percent was aged in tank, and 40% in neutral wood foudres. There are 20,000 cases of this offering, which may be the greatest wine value I have ever tasted. Deep ruby/purple-colored, with a gorgeous nose of kirsch liqueur intermixed with melted licorice and white flowers, this deep, medium to full-bodied, fruit-driven, sumptuously-textured 2002 is loaded. It should drink well for 3-4 years, possibly longer. One cannot bestow enough kudos on importer Eric Solomon for unearthing these treasures."

3.5 stars "Color: bright; Nose: discreet; Aromas: mineral, red berry; Acidity: supple; Sweetness: dry; Body: alcoholic; Finish: persistent; Overall: pleasant; Dark garnet with a bright ruby edge. Tastes erupts with a smoky wood and red berry beginning. The middle and end blend into an alcohol heavy dusty mouth with a medium-long finish."
