Jorge Ordonez Garnacha de Fuego, Old Vines, 2011

Red wine. Calatayud Denominacion di Origin. The best vineyards of Aragon are situated high on the hillsides, 3000 ft above sea level, where, despite the poor gravelly soil, the old gnarled vines produce the finest grapes possible in this arid, desolate region. Only the ripest clusters are chosen, thus producing a wine of considerable depth and finesse. The wine exudes intense aromas of sweet cherries and dark plums with an exotic spicy finish reminiscent of white pepper. Alc. 14.5% by vol. Imported by: The Henry Wine Group, Benicia, CA. Product of Spain.
