Grapes: 100% Garnacha Tinta
This wine is made from fruit which was hand harvested from 25 year old Garnacha vines. Those vines are grown in gravelly, chalk/loam at 560-600 meters above sea level. The wine was fermented and aged all in stainless steel tanks to maintain a vibrant, lively fruit character.

View from the Cellar
The 2014 Garnacha from Legado del Moncayo is produced from vines that are twentyfive years of age and the wine is raised entirely in stainless steel and see no wood. The wine offers up a classic and youthful interpretation of Garnacha, wafting from the glass in a blend of red and black raspberries, garrigue, coffee, meaty tones, turmeric, a bit of bonfire and a good base of soil. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, complex and well-balanced, with a fine core, modest tannins and impressive length and grip on the gently chewy finish. This is really outstanding, unembellished Garnacha that perfectly captures the charm of this varietal. It is a stunning value, as it sells here in the US for ten dollars and is probably less than five euros closer to Spain! 2016-2025. Issue Sixty-One January-February 2016
(all stainless steel): Assertive red berry liqueur and floral pastille aromas are complicated by allspice and white pepper. Sweet, seamless and pure, offering vibrant raspberry and cherry flavors sharpened by a zesty mineral flourish. Combines power and finesse deftly, finishing with very good persistence and supple, slow-building tannins. 2016 – 2020 Central Spain: Tempranillo and Beyond
