Lo Brujo Garnacha is made from sustainably farmed bush vines of Garnacha averaging 50 years in age. The vines are planted to iron-rich, stony, red soils in the rolling hills of Calatayud. At harvest, the grapes are pressed and naturally fermented in a combination of concrete and stainless steel vats. The wine is left to settle through the cold winter and is aged for 9 months in the bottle before release. It has an expressive bouquet of brambly fruit: blackberry, black cherry, red currant, and spice. On the palate, the wine features concentrated berry flavors, lovely spiciness, and a strong yet well-balanced core of minerality. This is an outstanding wine and an exceptional value.
Review of 2017 Vintage: "Vivid ruby. Assertive aromas of ripe red berries are complemented by hints of candied flowers and white pepper. Juicy, seamless and energetic in the mouth, offering appealingly sweet raspberry, cherry and floral pastille flavors that spread out nicely on the back half. Discreet tannins lend shape to a smooth, seamless, persistent finish that strongly echoes the red fruit note. This wine is way too easy to drink. All stainless steel.” 90 Points - Josh Raynolds, Vinous - Feb '21
