Coming from one of the most special and unknown territories of the Rioja region, in the mountains of Sierra de La Demanda. The north-facing vineyards experience cooler temperatures resulting in grapes that are able to ripen more slowly, showcasing flavors of greater balance and focus. In addition, the parcels are extremely small and steep. This terrain is almost impossible to mechanize, all the important vineyard work needs to be done by hand. Lastly and most importantly the region boasts some of hte oldest vines of Garnacha in Rioja. 60% Garnacha, 30% Tempranillo, 10% Graciano. Organically grown vines planted from 1940-1955. Tended in silica sandy soil at 700 m elevation. 24 months in stainless steel tanks plus 48 months in 60% French and 40% American oak barrels. “Vivid ruby-red. Ripe red berries, violet and cracked pepper on the nose; a vanilla nuance emerges with aeration. Seamless in texture and appealingly sweet, offering pliant raspberry and cherry flavors and a hint of mocha. Closes smooth and fruity, with subtle tannins coming in late.” -- Josh Raynolds
