Bodegas Luis Marin Gabarda Excelsis Old Vine Garnacha 2020

Aragon, SpainThe Ignacio Marin family have deep roots in the Cariñena region, with a winemaking heritage stretching back centuries. This cuvée sources old garnacha vines from 600m, and aged at least 3 months in French oak. Plumped blackberry, plum, black raspberry roll along the medium bodied palate, lit with a stony acidity, and framed with cushy tannins. At 13.5%, this is charming and drinkable now, ideally with roast lamb / pork dishes.Tasted: 16 March 2024Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
