  • Many are familiar with this old vine Garnacha from DO Navarra, and with good reason! Bodegas Nekeas sources this wine from vines planted 80-130 years ago grown on mostly clay soils (and some sand, which protected the vines from phylloxera back in the day) with a cool influence from the Atlantic Ocean breeze. Destemmed, fermented in stainless and aged in a combo of new, 2nd/3rd year French oak for a mere 6 months. Way less fruity than this used to be, the wine is incredibly well priced, medium-bodied, with soft tannins and a dark berry profile. Lovely with pork tenderloin, a no brainer with lamb barbacoa, and enough depth and complexity for a long marathon of netflix snuggled under a blanket.
