Rioja Garnacha Campo Viejo 2014

External Review by WineExpress.com:

In 2012 Campo Viejo released their first ever 100 percent Garnacha bottling from Rioja. It was a smashing success. Garnacha or Grenache as it’s known in France’s Rhone Valley is actually one of the designated grapes allowed for production of Rioja red and the grapes for this wine come from Campo Viejo's vineyards in the lower Rioja Baja subregion where Garnacha thrives. Vines are planted in alluvial soils with clay, limestone and silt. Following harvest, the wine was fermented in stainless steel vats at a controlled temperature, with a 12-day maceration. The wine then aged four months in new French oak barrels. This wine was a Platinum Medal winner with 94 points in the Critics Challenge Wine Competition. One Judge wrote "Camp Viejo's Garnacha shows notes of pepper and reds fruit, with firm tannins that will likely age out over the next couple of years, making this wine smoother and even more enjoyable as times passes." The wine shows aromas of red berries, cherry, vanilla and spice. On the palate bright strawberry fruit, raspberry, cherry, dried herbal notes and hints of toast play out with supple tannins. An absolute Steal!!
