Garnacha Virtual Tour Sept 16th

Posted by rckr1951, Sep 17, 2016.

It seemed well received by those not familiar the the Spain side of the grape's expression. I, personally, would like to have it done a different method- a true celebration of the grape from different areas. It's not hard and I think that it would have a better nod towards the grape. Itself.

How did you feel about the VT.

I kinda feel bad.  We had an abrupt change of schedule, and, so, I was unable to participate.

Don't - though it was fun reading the posts of those that hadn't experienced Spainish wine at this price point and style I'd have a more complete over view of the grape - USA, France,Spain and Australia, et al to show the stylistic differences and tastes of the grape grown in different areas.

Y'know, Rckr, they're damned if they do and they're damned if they don't.  Comparing across different geographies is certainly valid, but a concentration on a single geography is just as valid.

Then, you have to consider the capitalist view.  Typically, these events are underwritten by a winery, or some sort of marketing group.  They want to feature their wines--in this case Spanish.  Those other guys you mention are the competition--no reason to give them any attention at all.

So, after looking at it that way, as much as I agree that it would be fun to do a more diverse evaluation, it probably is not going to happen on Snooth.

I also have to fess up that I have some familiarity with one of the wines they were tasting.   It is far from one of my favorites.

Being relatively new I still don't have the insight that you guy have here - so lesson learned and I too have a familiarity with one of those also.  It used to be more formidable now it's mostly heat - and I could only find the Evodia in time for the VT.  Last one until the blend is better.
