Bottle Description

THE WINE ADVOCATE #222 (Dec 2015) Luis Gutiérrez - 93 points - Drink Date: 2016 - 2020 - "The 2013 Old Vines Dry Farmed Carignan from Garage Wine Co. is sourced from an extremely old vineyard in Truquilemu, the part of the Secano Interior that is closest to the sea, in a zone where the grapes can ripen. This comes from a field blend that contains other varieties like Torrontés Negro and País. The wine fermented with natural yeasts and spent two winters in used French oak barrels before bottling. The nose starts off floral and with bright red berry aromas, with good ripeness and just a pinch of spices from the élevage. The palate is medium-bodied with very good acidity and a low pH (3.33). With time, the nose turns more organic, earthy and a liqueur note eventually appears. While powerful, it's round and easy to drink. It evolved quite fast in the glass, which makes me hesitate about its evolution in bottle for many years... 1,992 bottles produced."
