2000 Luna Beberide Tinto VdT Castilla y Leon
Last year when we offered the 1999 vintage of this wine, it was an immediate hit; we sold bundles of it and now, alas, it is gone. Fortunately, we have the new 2000 vintage, composed of the same blend (Cab, Merlot, Mencía) made by the same winemaker - Mariano Garcia of Vega Siclia fame. If anything, the 2000 vintage is more muscular, ageworthy, and a bit more impressive. It's drinking really well now, with intense, meaty red fruit and a minerality that reminds me a bit of a particular well known, aged bottle of Graves we sell right now (a great bottle but twice the price....) In fact this bottle was originally the equivalent of $40 in Spain, but we are getting a very good deal. I would suggest you act fast on this offer, we don't have much, we are once again the exclusive west coast retailers for the wine, and it is likely to disappear quickly.
