About

92

"A custom blend for importer Eric Solomon made from 100% Garnacha from very high-altitude sites, aged all in concrete, the 2016 Vinos de Madrid offers a Southern Rhône-like style in its dried herbs, cherries, currants, and mineral-laced aromas and flavors. This ruby colored, elegant, seamless Garnacha shows more and more floral notes with time in the glass, has a rich, heady perfume, ripe tannin, and a great finish. Drink it anytime over the coming 3-5 years."

"I tasted an unbottled sample last time, so it was time to review the bottled 2016 Granitos de Cadalso, which showed superbly, with great freshness and floral aromas, with great finesse and detail. I also liked the palate very much, where the austere and strict tannins from the granite are very noticeable. This has a great combination of approachability and seriousness. This is a great value! 14,000 bottles were filled in June 2017."

Product Description:

"The village of Cadalso de los Vidrios is situated at the foot of the Sierra de Gredos. For centuries workshops here made glass windows for the palaces of Spain from the granite sands of the region. Ancient, head-pruned vines of Garnacha planted in these same soils make equally transparent wine. Garnet in color with vibrant flavors of ref fruits, laurel and orange peel, Granito del Cadalso is made under the guidance of rockstar winemakers Dani Landi and Fernando Garcia." - Winery
