The vines for this wine in particular were planted between 1925 and 1945. They are located in the valleys between Sierra de Pardos and Sierra de Peña Blanca and planted in principally decomposed slate and gravely clay soils. The yields are less than 1T/ acre for the old vines. The wine is aged for 21 months in the finest French oak barrels.

Wine AdvocateFor a tad more money, the 2014 Breca, which is 100% bush-vine Grenache planted 1900-1940, is another take on this fabulous grape that flourishes in many areas of Spain as well as Southern France. This wine spent 18 months sur lie in 500- to 600-liter French demi-muids. A deep ruby/plum color offers up notes of jammy strawberries, black cherries, raspberries, licorice, underbrush and lavender. It is deep, ripe, medium to full-bodied, heady (must be 14.5-15% natural alcohol) with a long, juicy finish. Drink it over the next 2-3 years.

Wine SpectatorPlum and cassis flavors mingle with black olive, espresso and tar notes in this firm red, which is dense, showing rather grippy tannins and a slightly hot finish. Drink now through 2022. 5,000 cases made.
