Robert Parker - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:

"The 2011 Garnacha de Fuego, a 100% Grenache cuvee, was aged in both stainless steel and neutral French oak. There are 10,000 cases for the United States. This amazing wine boasts a dark ruby/purple color along with a sweet kiss of jammy black cherries intertwined with crushed rock notes that give the wine an undeniable minerality. As it hits the palate, a full-bodied, voluptuous texture takes hold and the flavor profile moves towards blacker fruits (ripe raspberries and black currants) intermixed with camphor and forest floor. This full-bodied, rich, glycerin-filled effort should drink well for 4-5 years, perhaps longer."

"Just when you think you’ve tasted the wine world’s greatest values, along comes the Bodegas Breca. Founded in 2005 by Jorge Ordonez, this bodegas has 650 acres, mostly old vine Grenache vineyards planted on hillsides at an altitude of 2,850 to 3,000 feet. All the vines were planted between 1925 and 1968, and yields average between 0.4 and one ton of fruit per acre." (10/12)

Product Description:

WINE:
"Grapes are sourced from Old Vines vineyards situated high on the hillsides at about 3,000 ft. above sea level. There is a range of soil types throughout the region, however most vineyards could be described as having gravely clay loams. The clay is at depth and allows for the vines to obtain moisture and be dry grown even though there is very little rainfall in the region (around 350ml per year). The climate is continental and very dry. During the growing season there are high daytime temperatures moderated by cool nights due to the high altitude. Winters are cold, and scant rainfall throughout the year." -Winery
