About This Wine:
An authentic, natural, and traditional wine produced from the original Garnacha, which was first cultivated in Aragón in the 7th Century, and spread around Europe by the Medieval Kingdom of Aragón. Calatayud produces a unique expression of Garnacha due to its geographic and climactic conditions. As Spain's highest altitude region for the production of Garnacha, the temperature swings are radical - up to 60°F in the summer. This produces wines with deep color and character, as well as lively acidity. The wine is characterized by aromas of ripe black fruit, overlaid with spices such as black pepper. There is an obvious minerality to the wine, proceeding from vineyards’ diverse range of soil types. The soils range from iron rich red slate and clay to black slate.

Ratings & Reviews

92 Points & #29 Top 100 Wines of 2018 - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"Round, smooth and dense, this red shows harmony and balance. Plum and blackberry flavors mingle with black olive, toast and mineral notes, supported by well-integrated tannins and fresh acidity, leaving a lovely floral finish. Drink now through 2027. 20,000 cases made." - TM (Oct 2018)

91 Points - James Suckling:
"Sweet, yet delicate raspberry-liqueur nose. Almost opulent, but the ripe fruit and fresh acidity carry the widescreen body well. Long, supple finish. Drink now or hold." (Aug 2018)

90 Points - Vinous Media:
"(made in stainless steel and concrete tanks) Opaque ruby. Highly perfumed black and blue fruits and violet on the nose, joined by a suggestion of five-spice powder that emerges with air. Supple, seamless and nicely concentrated, offering juicy boysenberry and floral pastille flavors enlivened by jolt of white pepper. The smooth, subtly tannic finish echoes the blue fruit note and hangs on with very good tenacity." - Josh Raynolds (Jan 2017)
