Very intense cherry red colour with tones of purple. Presents in the nose a great concentration of aromas of ripe red fruit with floral nuances. In the mouth it is a well structured rich wine that evokes tastes of blackberry, plum and tones of leather and vanilla, with a soft and silky tannin.
More delicate and floral than many garnachas from this area with a great balance on the palate between delicately sweet fruit, fresh dry tannins and crisp acidity. A lot of energy and excitement on the long finish. Drink or hold. - James Suckling 92 Points
A wine that over-delivers in just about every vintage, the 2016 Tres Picos is always 100% Garnacha from red/iron-laced soils, destemmed and brought up in French oak barrels. Raspberries, spice, dried flowers and potpourri notes all emerge from this juicy, front end-loaded, absolutely delicious red that has a touch of vanilla, medium to full-bodied richness, and a great finish. Drink it over the coming 2-4 years. - Jeb Dunnuck 91 Points
The minty and balsamic 2016 Tres Picos Garnacha is difficult to identify as Garnacha. It matured in new French oak barrels for five months, which gives it a roasted and smoky character. It’s very intense and might overpower food. It has abundant tannins and a dusty texture. A very oaky red in the end-of-the-1990s style. 192,000 bottles produced. - Robert Parker 90 Points
