Garum 2014

Described as “entry level” by its maker, Willy Perez, this is a red table wine from Merlot, Syrah and Petit Verdot grown on various pagos in Jerez, with 12 months in american and french oak.

Relatively dark in colour and the nose puts you in mind of jammified blackberries, but spicey and herbal  – salty rosemary or oregano or a mix of the two. On the palate it has those jammy blackberries, nice acidity and soft tannins – and maybe I am imagining it but it seems saline to me – makes my tongue water. 

Good stuff on the entry level – looking forward to the upper floors now.
