Ben and I tasted this wine just a couple of weeks ago and we were absolutely blown away by the quality for money in this bottle of wine. From the same producer that brings us the Don Ramon Tinto (a past Case of the Month success story), the wine comes from the higher altitude, wind swept vineyards of the Campo de Borja in North-Central Spain. This area is known for producing some of Spain’s top red wine values, and most of these are based primarily on Garnacha which is believed to have originated in this region.
The 2013 Coto de Hayas Garnacha/Syrah is a 70/30 blend of the two grapes and is fermented entirely in stainless steel. Offering up a solid bouquet of ripe kirsch, raspberry, pepper, and cocoa, it smells a lot like a really good Cotes du Rhone from a warmer vintage. The palate is super smooth and rounded with almost no tannic edge, and the flavors are of ripe, balanced, and pure berry fruit and spice. All in all, this would make a perfect daily drinker or party wine, but it’s “serious” enough to stand up to barbecued ribs or a good burger.
We hate to be the bearer of bad news, but we’ve only got 5 cases of this one to sell and it’s out indefinitely from our distributor. That was not our plan or intention, but the flow of wine is like the flow of life a lot of times — unpredictable. To make sure you secure some for yourself, you can call us at 828.505.8588 or email us at email@example.com and we’ll take care of the rest.
