EVODIA is an exciting project in the Denominacion de Origen Calatayud, hailed as one of Spain's most progressive and promising wine growing regions. Calatayud is distinguished by its prevalence of high elevation vineyards planted to the Garnacha variety - in fact, the highest in the entire country. The vineyards surrounding the small town of Atea reach upwards of 3000 feet - the highest within the DO. It is here, in the vineyards of Atea, that Altovinum sources their Garnacha grapes for EVODIA. In addition to the remarkable climate due to elevation, the property is comprised of pure schiste soils, known as pisara in the local area. Aficionados familiar with the wines of the Priorat and the Roussillon are well acquainted to this soil type and its extraordinary influence on the wines.

Sexy, high-pitched aromas of strawberry preserves, black raspberry, minerals and pungent flowers. Concentrated but not at all heavy; sweet raspberry and blackberry flavors are lifted by a hint of violet. Very suave, especially at this price; finishes with silky tannins and excellent clarity. No jamminess here, which is pretty rare for inexpensive garnacha. These vines are reportedly planted at 850 to 1,100 meters altitude on slate and are more than 100 years old. Made of 100% unoaked Garnacha.

Earthy tobacco and natural warmth provide for a good nose. It's briary smelling as well, with racy cherry and plum flavors. Shows some heat from 15% alcohol, but for $9 wine it packs a lot power and flavor. Unmistakable Garnacha that reflects sunny environs.
