If you’re a long time Taylor’s shopper, then this one might sound familiar, but it’s been a while since we’ve loved a vintage of Breca’s Garnacha de Fuego as much as this one.  Spanish importer Jorge Ordóñez pioneered the introduction of Garnacha into the United States in the 1990s, when Garnacha was the most widely planted grape in Spain. At that time, however, most of the Spanish red wines available in the American market were Tempranillo dominant. Jorge recognized the quality of the old vine plantings of Garnacha and the wines they produced, and in 2010 he helped found this value driven label that produces wines from old vine Garnacha in Calatayud.  Neon ruby-red. Jammy red and blue fruit and floral aromas and flavors are sharpened by a spicy nuance that builds with air. Shows very good energy and refreshing tanginess on the long, subtly tannic finish, which leaves boysenberry, candied lavender and white pepper notes behind.
