The Las Enebradas bottling from Viñedos Del Jorco is their oldest vine Garnacha bottling, made from a very small parcel of venerable vines planted at one thousand meters of elevation. They partner with the owner of this one hundred year-old vineyard, who will eventually bequeath them the vines when his time is up. The wine is handled differently in the cellars than the Las Cabañuelas or El Jorco, as this wine is fermented forty percent in old French casks and sixty percent in amphora, followed by twelve months? elevage in old French casks. -John Gilman
Shimmering red. Mineral-accented red berry and cherry aromas are complemented by licorice, exotic spice and floral nuances. Gently chewy and appealingly sweet, offering pliant black raspberry, cherry and violet pastille flavors that are braced by a smoky mineral quality. Shows fine definition and floral lift on the persistent finish, which is framed by smooth, well-knit tannins. 92pts VINOUS
