Dehesa Gago 2013

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

At first this has an attractive and assertive green nettle tone which then yields to a shale mineral component and subtle notes of horse and black licorice that accent the lovely almost candied yet very clear black raspberry liquor fruit. Smooth and rich on the mouth with a leanness that is attractive and a cleansing quality to the acid and tannin that doesn’t obscure the herb and hot dry soil tinged black raspberry fruit. This shows a touch more tannin on the back end that gives this a bit of rusticity but the tannins are wonderfully crisp with just a hint of refreshing astringency Full throttle and eminently drinkable, this is neither particularly complex nor simple, just terrific. 91pts

This is how the business started, originally under the name of Compañía de Vinos de La Granja. The name was a declaration of intent: it made it clear that the company would be producing more wines in the future and contained a homage to La Granja, the famous glassworks, a centre of outstanding Spanish craftwork that has all but disappeared.

Lots of fresh blackberry and plum notes - kind of jammy on the nose, akin to beaujolais. Dark ruby colour. Described as a "rambunctious wine" by the wine maker, we found this one to be deep and acidic on the palate with fruit, some mint, and rough tannin. This wine doesn't get any oak, even though we all swore we tasted it (this might be a good example of what people call stemmy tannin?) Medium to long length.

Excellent, fine balance of dryness and fruit, pairs well with spicy foods.

A bright, pale-green and yellow hue, aromas of green citrus, wet hay, diesel and minerals; bright, tart acid driven notes of asparagus, kiwi and wet stone thru a long, focused finish. Worth every penny when paired with a picnic or white fish.

    This was really an exceptionally unique and standout wine. It has it's own character - very similar to the Yalumba Barossa I often drink.

    This red is light-bodied but muscular, with focused flavors of cherry, berry, herbs and tobacco, supported by light, firm tannins and lively acidity. Balanced and subtle.

    This is deep, lush and earthy on the nose, with tobacco, broad spice aromas and fair but generous oak. It feels tight and balanced, with toasty, peppery flavors of cassis and black cherry. It's long, toasty and chocolaty on the finish, with layered s... Wine Enthusiast. A Proprietary Blend wine from Rioja in Spain. 2008 Telmo Rodriguez Rioja Lanzaga 750ml
