2012 Menguante Garnacha Seleccion
"Deep ruby color. Ripe cherry and dark berry with notes of licorice and vanilla. Full bodied, smooth and complex. Ripe blackberry and cherry flavors. Smooth finish.
Menguante - Menguante means 'waning moon'. In biodynamic viticulture, the casks are racked at night only when there is a waning moon, for fear the gravitational force from a fuller moonwill bring the sediment up from the bottom of the cask.
The bodega was founded in 1760 with their present state-of-the-art bodega constructed over the former bodega. The Pablo family continues to implement cutting edge technology in this modern facility. Their objective is to transmit the essence of the land and the unique flavor of the indigenous grapes to their wines." - Importer
