Tasting Notes

In the Sierra de Gredos mountains, just to the south of Madrid, some pretty amazing Garnacha is being made around the village of San Martin de Valdeiglesias. Catalan winemaker Marc Isart Pinos is taking old vines, (in this case from a vineyard of decomposed granite with only 18 inches of topsoil), applying excellent viticultural work, fermenting in foudre with some whole clusters used, as well as long maceration on the skins for further complexity, and bottling with a minimum of sulfur to create a beautiful, expressive wine. If your frame of reference for Garnacha is the inexpensive co-op stuff, the dressed up pricier co-op stuff, or Priorat, then you need to try this to enhance your perspective, as well as change your mind about what this grape is capable of in Spain. I'll take this over 99.99% of Chateauneuf-du-Pape -- maybe even Rayas. (Joe Manekin, K&L Spanish wine buyer)
