About This Wine:
The Garnacha from Espelt comes from their highest elevation vineyard, Rabós, tucked in the Albera Nature Reserve Area. These are the oldest vines on the property with centenary Garnacha Negra and Carinyena grow on sandy slate and granite soils. While there are plenty of inexpensive, fruitforward Garnachas coming from Spain, few have the depth of minerality and complexity found in this old-vine cuvée.

Ratings & Reviews

Jeb Dunnuck:
"A custom cuvée made by importer Eric Solomon, the 2016 Garnacha Old Vines from Espelt is 100% Garnatxa Negra (the indigenous variety of Grenache), from old vines and higher elevation vineyards, that spent 4 months in new French oak. Plums, violets, incense, flowers, and white pepper notes give way to a plump, ripe, sexy red that has good acidity and freshness, as well as a wet stone-like minerality that emerges on the palate. Drink this perfumed, exotic, fruit forward effort anytime over the coming 2-4 years." (Feb 2019)
