    Winemaker's Notes:

    The vines for this wine in particular were planted between 1925 and 1945. They are located in the valleys between Sierra de Pardos and Sierra de Pena Blanca and planted in principally decomposed slate and gravely clay soils. The wine is aged for 21 months in the finest French oak barrels.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The estate’s oldest vines are utilized for the 2010 Breca, also 100% Garnacha from vines that were planted between 1925 and 1945 in decomposed slate and gravelly clay soils. Yields were less than one ton of fruit per acre, and the wine was aged in old large French oak foudres. This is an amazing terroir of steep hillsides and ancient head-pruned vines. Black raspberry, truffle, kirsch, lavender and liquid rock-like characteristics emerge from this astonishing wine. Frankly, I was at a loss for words when I tasted it. It may be the most amazing wine I have ever tasted at this price in over three decades. The wine world is changing, and Jorge Ordonez and his associates deserve a huge amount of credit for producing something this remarkable at this price point. Consumers should fill their trunks with these beauties.

    Glass-staining ruby. Intense scents of blackberry, cherry-cola and candied violet, with strong mineral and star anise accents. Shows energetic, focused flavors of dark berries and candied flowers, with a late kick of peppery spices. Picks up sweetness with air, finishing impressively long, with lingering notes of vanilla and candied flowers.
