Rubén Díaz Garnacha Paso de Cebra 2017
Castilla y León, Spain
Díaz quotes Baudelaire: “Wine is like man: you never know to what extent it can be appreciated or despised…nor how many sublime acts or monstrous crimes it is capable of performing.” This Garnacha is just as surprising as humans can be. Grapes are sourced from 5 different vineyards representing different microclimates around Cebreros ranging between 60-100 years. Grapes are crushed, destemmed, and fermented separately than blended and raised in old French oak. The flavor is of rich red berries, earth, and stone. Pair with chorizo and horror.
