2017 Vinas Viejas de Paniza Garnacha 

2017 Vinas Viejas de Paniza Garnacha 

Kind of a fun find here. The price is definitely right at $7.99. Online it appears to go for around $11 so there’s a good Costco discount.

We also love finding straight Garnacha, not blended. It gives you a nice perspective on the varietal.

Paniza Garnacha

The wine pours in between a pale to medium ruby and purple. It has earthy red fruit on the nose and is medium in body with light tannins.

It took me a while to nail down the predominant flavor; definitely a raspberry and strawberry but some interesting spices, on the mellow side, that bring an almost slight gingerbread taste.

It’s a little sweet on the finish and fruity with flavor that reminded me of a Swedish fish. It’s not overly sweet by any means and the more we tasted it the more we enjoyed it.

This is an easy drinking summer red, that is light and easy. And the $8 price is just a bonus on top of that.

not our wine, and we love most Spanish wines.

Thank you for your review. A number of customers have asked me about this Garnacha Now I have a good reference to use when I assist the customers and discuss this wine with them.

Spanish wines seem to have the most bang for the buck. Is it because of a favorable exchange rate vs. USA $ or just low demand?

Hard to say for sure but I just don’t think enough people know how good these can taste. Awareness maybe the biggest thing. Hope we’re helping that because these are huge bang for the buck.
