"Produced with a specific strain of Garnacha, Garnacha Peluda or hairy Garnacha, the 2015 La Peluda is a new bottling from lime and limestone soils planted with the strain that tends to produce fresher and lighter juice with higher acidity. It fermented in stainless steel with malolactic in barrels and a further ten months in 500-liter French oak barrels. There is a sappy spicy character to this red that I loved, cracked peppercorn with a wild side that made me think of a Syrah from Valais. It's really aromatic and showy. The palate is very refined, with an herbal twist that provides great freshness, perhaps from a relatively early harvest. Impressive!! 6,000 bottles were filled in September 2016."

Rich and aromatic - A wine that has personality without being overbearing, this 100% Spanish Grenache is a wonderful value as we head into the holiday season! Deep, vibrant ruby in color, its aroma draws you in with essence of ripe raspberry, strawberry, and white pepper. On the palate; medium body and soft tannins compliment delicate red fruits and spice with a silky, lingering finish. Would pair marvelously with savory meats, such as turkey or lamb.

Unwise to fall in love with the unavailable - I actually bought more because those friends cleaned ME out. But, with a bottling this small, we are just lucky to get a taste before it is gone. WA 92 is a helpful nudge to buy. How are we going to keep it long the cellar after everybody knows it is there?

Somewhat harsh and dry only at the beginning,then after while gets better - Too young still. Has a lot of potential
