Breca Old Vine Garnacha 2016
|Availability:||In stock (5)|
A wine with a deep color and character, as well as lively acidity. It is characterized by aromas of ripe black fruit compote, overlaid with spices such as black pepper. There is an obvious minerality to the wine, proceeding from vineyards’ diverse range of soil types. The soils range from iron-rich red slate and clay to black slate.
94 Jeb Dunnuck - Coming from two different sites of incredibly old vines, the 2016 Brega is all Garnacha that was fermented and aged 20 months in mostly new barrels. Deep purple-colored with powerful notes of ripe black fruits, melted licorice, incense, and violets, it’s full-bodied, concentrated, and opulent on the palate, with nicely integrated acidity, a core of sweet fruit, and a great finish. It's a beautiful, elegant, yet incredibly sexy wine to drink over the coming 4-5 years.
