Explosive red fruits on the nose. Cherries, cranberries, strawberries. Hint of cloves and curing spice aromas too. Great structure, balanced tannins, juicy and silky smooth mouthfeel. Red fruits on the nose with cooling/numbing sensation. Crushed rocks and gravel. Refined rusticity - great with a chill. — 11 days ago
Perfumed, Pinot-like Gredos Garnacha from a low-yield, long abandoned vineyard on mainly granitic soils in Cadalso de los Vidrios, at approximately 2,700 ft above sea level. Like other producers in the are, grapes underwent whole-cluster fermentation (con raspón). Aged for 12 months in used 300 liter barrels. Light ruby color, fragrant (strawberries, floral) and elegant — 25 days ago
Just outside Mardid, in the Sierra del Gredos lies the Tumba del Rey Moro Vineyard. Until a few years ago, this site was almost impossible to access, until Fernando García & Dani Landi spent several months removing brush and overgrowth in order to be able to farm the 60-70 year old vines planted to the granite and quartz soils. This 100% Garnacha is simply gorgeous, with a incredible silky, polished texture, and the elegance and refinement that easily rivals some of the finest wines on the planet. Its characteristics of wild berries, floral, spices, earth and herbs are pure and focused. It continues to thoroughly impress with its wonderful precision and balance through the long finish. While this is certainly impressive now, in due time, this could be something very special. — a month ago
Sunday night and I have opened the 2016 Comando G La Bruja De Rozas Garnacha. 100% Garnacha from the Las Rozas de Puerto Real in the Sierra de Gredos near Madrid.
The nose has aromas of strawberry, raspberry, black cherry, licorice vanilla and earth.
The palate has wonderful red fruits of raspberry, cherry, strawberry, anise, cinnamon, a minerality and dusty earth.
This wine is medium to full bodied with a smooth elegance, medium+ acidity and medium+ fine tannins that lead to a long fruit filled finish. For a village wine and the price this has blown me away. Have a great week ahead and please be safe. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷 — a month ago
