Bodegas Breca Old Vines Garnacha 2014


SKU 23749


The grapes come from old vines vineyards, 60-80 years-old, with yields of 2T/Ha and located high on the hillsides, 3,000 ft above sea level, around Calatayud. The vineyards are planted in principally decomposed slate and gravely clay soils. Even though there is very little rainfall in the region (around 350ml per year), the clay is at depth and allows for the vines to obtain moisture and be dry grown.

VinousDark purple. Deeply pitched cherry, cassis and pipe tobacco aromas are brightened by floral and peppery spice qualities. Cherry compote and plum jam flavors coat the palate, with juicy acidity providing shape and back-end cut. Gains focus as well as depth with air and finishes sweet, smooth and quite long, with fine-grained tannins adding grip. Pretty serious in style for a Garnacha and a seriously great value as well.-JR

Wine EnthusiastBest Buy. Saucy blueberry aromas are a touch muddled and difficult to decipher, while this Garnacha feels medium in body and healthy. Raspberry and plum flavors come with a resiny, pasty oak note, while medicinality rises up on the finish.
