Some say that old vines loose productivity with age but I believe that it increases the concentration in wine - and I love me an inky, deep, moody red in the winter. Old vines are so special because they tend to be over 50 years of age. Their roots run deep, ripeness is no problem and they take care of themselves. These grapes were grown on rugged, Edward scissor like, gnarly bush vines to create a wine with phenomenal intensity. Black cherry, blueberry, slate, leather and that Garnacha signature of a peppery spiciness fills your palate alongside chunky tannins and the finish is smooth. Also thanks to the second use French oak barrels the oak doesn't overpower the wine- it just adds another layer of complexity.
