Notes from the winemaker:
This wine is our tribute to the flagship grape variety of Rioja Baja. Garnacha has been grown in Alfaro for many centuries in perfect balance with the local soils and climate which result in our intensely fruity wines, full-bodied and with velvety soft tannins. Deep and brilliant cherry color; red wild berries, violet and subtle spice on the nose; the taste sensation is rich, long, and very smooth.

Ratings & Reviews

90 Points - Antonio Galloni's Vinous:
"Deep, bright-rimmed ruby. Vibrant red fruits aromas gain urgency with air and pick up an appealing floral quality. Silky and seamless in texture, offering open-knit raspberry and cherry flavors that become spicier on the back half. In a plush, emphatically fruity style, finishing juicy and quite long, with soft tannins framing the exuberant fruit." - Josh Raynolds (February 2019)

90 Points - James Suckling:
"Ripe wild raspberry and cassis fruits that are really brambly and expressive. The palate is all raspberry with smooth tannins and gently tangy appeal. Drink now." - James Suckling (November 2017)

90 Points - Jeb Dunnuck:
"This estate turned out an outstanding 2016 Old Vine Garnacha, which is 100% varietal brought up all in tank. Classic notes of darker cherries, currants, tobacco, and cedary herbs all flow to a medium-bodied Garnacha that has plenty of fruit and spice, a rounded, layered texture, and tons of charm. It’s a terrific value and should keep nicely for 2-4 years." - Jeb Dunnuck (March 2019)
