Lovely right now, smashing at ~$20/btl. Red apple skin, kirsch, crushed morello cherry, cooked red plums, black tea, rose petals, cinnamon, licorice root, beef, and sage blossoms. Loads of sandy mineralty throughout, at its fruity/savory/earthy sweet spot right now.

Unlike any #Garnacha or red #wine from Madrid that I've ever had. Different from start to finish. Bright, spicy & smoky. #neverassume #España #sustainablyfarmed

2012 vintage. Bright and beautifully red berry scented, this elegant interpretation highlights roasted herbs and meaty additions. Medium-bodied, juicy and fresh, very dry and chalky with youthful tannins and positively tart fruit. Give it a few more years.

Lighter than expected, but with some air the lovely cedar and spicy notes come out

Brightly scented Grenache. Strong terroir but a touch hot. Screamer of a wine.

2011. So pure and bright. 100% Garnacha from just outside of Madrid. Generous berry fruit without any notions of over-ripeness. Silky-soft texture. Pure pleasure.

Nice, peppery Grenache, but too expensive for its value. There are some nice opening flavors that characterize a great Grenache, but a rough aftertaste.
