Azul y Garanza
95% Merlot & 5% Cabernet Sauvignon
From six certified organic vineyard parcels located next to the Bardenas Reales Desert - about 5 hectares on extremely arid clay-calcareous based soils at an altitude of 337 meters, oriented East-West. Berry size and yields are extremely small.
Primary and malolactic fermentation in concrete (native yeast) followed by 12 months aging in 225L French oak barrels and an additional 6 months in bottle.
TASTING NOTES |
The naturally low yields and small berry size lead to fantastically concentrated fruit while maintaining structure and acidity. Notes of black fruits are embellished with chocolate and a delicious light toasted note. A smooth, rounded palate with layers of ripe tannins and full flavors. Built to last - the wine will continue to improve in bottle over time.

“Bright purple. Smoky, sharply focused aromas of fresh cherry, raspberry, lavender and white pepper. Chewy, energetic and subtly sweet, showing very good depth to its cherry liqueur and black raspberry flavors. Tangy acidity gives lift and definition to the very persistent finish, which features fine-grained tannins and a sexy floral nuance.” - Josh Raynolds
