Garmón - Ribera del Duero 2017


With Garmón, the García (Mauro and San Román) family is committed to ancestral viticulture of small-scale, old, sparsely-grown vineyards and native clones, located in the higher, cooler and continental Duero areas with a longer ripening and later harvesting cycle. These factors condition the idiosyncrasy of an elegant and juicy red, of imposing and refined fruit expression.

Very expressive on the nose with a predominance of red fruit and floral notes. Fleshy, energetic and balanced. Excellent ageing potential. 

Jeb Dunnuck: 'All Tempranillo, the 2017 Garmon comes from vines ranging from 30 to 100 years of age and spent 18 months in French oak. It's another ripe, sexy, yet beautifully balanced wine from this estate that has classic Tempranillo dark berry fruits, graphite, spice box, violet, and dried herb-like aromas and flavors. With medium to full-bodied richness, a rounded, expansive texture, and silky tannins, drink this beautifully polished, elegant Ribera over the coming decade or so.'
