Wine Review & Rating: *** $ Satis Dei Syrah Garnacha, de la Tierra de Castilla, Spain, 2018 = BEST VALUE

Check out today's pricing and retail availability for Satis Dei wines.

By way of background: The Satis Dei Syrah Garnacha is a mix of 55% syrah and 45% garnacha.  I first spotted it at Trader Joe's and found it a unique combination for the region.  It was priced in the high single digit US dollars per bottle.  Let's see what it's all about!
Inspired by Satis Dei Syrah Garnacha: A few of us are stretching, ready for a brisk run on this cool spring day.


Specs: This blend is finished at 14.5% alcohol and first sampled four years from vintage date, in May, 2022.

In the glass: Brilliant black cherry, just moving to opaque in the center. 

On the nose: Poured at room temperature and swirled vigorously, pushes purple fruit boldly into your nose, seems it will deliver layers of bold, luscious fruit.

On the palate:   Sleek, sandy and bold fruit on the entry - very ripe blackberry wrapped in light sandy coating.  The sip moves to a more acid presence with a few more seconds on the palate.  Finishes relatively rapidly and clean. 

In summary: Overall, rates an easy three stars on the five-star Spirit of Wine scale, not quite earning a plus, but definitely earning a "best value" designation.
