100% Grenache. Featherweight and elegant: opening up a bottle, you’re greeted with notes of red cherry, fennel and granite on the nose, and on the palate, there’s lingering acidity, barely there tannins and a mélange of red fruits and minerals. Although there’s plenty to contemplate, this playful wine offers lots of immediate pleasure. The vines range from 40-80 years of age, and are all planted to pink clay and chalky gypsum.

Delicately perfumed with cherry, licorice, violets, mint and granitic minerality, this is a delightful and complex wine that demonstrates the suave, genteel character Grenache is capable of when in the right hands. Its texture is like silk, yet there's an exuberance of fruit and minerals belying its lithe body. A true standout.

Professional Reviews

Robert Parker

RP 93
"This comes from three vineyards at high altitude on clay-rich soils that have a limestone mother rock. It fermented and matured in concrete vats and has the chalky texture of the tannins, and perhaps the concrete amplifies the earthy/chalky sensations. This is an elegant Garnacha that is floral, spicy and transparent, very elegant; it was picked early and bottled with 13% alcohol. The palate is medium to full-bodied, with very fine tannins and the freshness from the altitude, the cool year and the soils. Great Garnacha. 6,500 bottles produced." -Luis Gutierrez

Wine Spectator

WS 94
"This is a mountain wine from pure garnacha with dark berries, smoked tea and flowers. Full body. Tight and ultra fine tannins. Chewy yet caressing. A complex and complete wine." -James Suckling
