Altovinum’s Evodia – Calatayud region, Spain

Evodia red wine

Altovinum’s Evodia is 100% old vine Garnacha grapes, grown in the village of Atea, in Spain’s Calatayud region. The vineyards around Atea are the highest of any in the area. According to winemaker Eric Solomon, the climate at that elevation and ideal soil give Evodia its unique character.

Wine Enthusiast describes Evodia 2010 as “Floral and fresh smelling, with rosy notes, blueberry and nary any funk, leather or earth. Vibrant and juicy in the mouth, with boysenberry and plum flavors that set up a fruity, clean finish. Brighter, smoother and easier going than the 2009. ”

Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate gave Evodia 90 points.  “It offers up a slightly exotic nose of earthy minerality, mocha, black cherry, and black raspberry. Savory, concentrated, and with a forward personality, this great value will deliver pleasure over the next 3-4 years.”
