Caballo Oscuro Old Vine Garnacha 2022 - A Testament to Timeless Terroir
Step into the essence of the Ebro valley with the Caballo Oscuro Old Vine Garnacha 2018, a dry red wine that is both a tribute to its storied origins and a celebration of vinicultural artistry. Sourced from venerable vines that have witnessed the passage of time, this Garnacha is a deep dive into the soul of Spain's most cherished wine regions.
From the Heart of the Ebro: Meandering through the landscape of northeastern Spain, the Ebro river is a lifeline for a mosaic of wine-growing regions known for their Garnacha. From the hallowed soils of Rioja to the storied terrains of Navarra and beyond, the river's journey through these lands has given rise to wines that encapsulate the vibrancy and spirit of the Mediterranean.
Vintage Virtues: In 2022 we once again saw a relatively mild winter and rainy spring, but then there was very little rain for the whole of a very long, hot summer so the harvest was a fortnight earlier than usual, of healthy, properly ripened grapes.
A Palette of Flavors: In the glass, the Caballo Oscuro Old Vine Garnacha exhibits a deep, penetrating red, signaling the concentrated hues from old vines. Approach the bouquet and be captivated by robust scents of fresh blackberries and ripe cherries, punctuated by a peppery spice that beckons further exploration. The palate is greeted with a full-bodied richness, where the lush fruit leads the charge towards a broad, yet finely structured flavor profile. Each sip concludes with a long, juicy finish that lingers with intent, a testament to the wine's graceful maturity without the intrusion of harsh tannins.
Imbibe with Intention: At 14% alcohol, this Old Vine Garnacha stands as a robust yet accessible red, ready to elevate any dining experience or to be savored on its own. It's a wine that respects its lineage, embodies its environment, and promises to be as enduring as the ancient vines it hails from.
Indulge in the Caballo Oscuro Old Vine Garnacha and uncork a bottle of history, one that flows as richly as the river that nourishes its roots.
