K&L Notes

Vinos del Viento is our most recent addition to our direct-import portfolio from Spain. It is a project that focuses on Garnacha and Cariñena (Grenache and Carignan) from the region that is the origin for both varieties, Aragon. All of the DO’s of Aragon are represented in the portfolio; Campo de Borja, Calatayud, Cariñena and Somontano. Winemaker Michael Cooper, who is a native to California, looks for purity and freshness in his wine. To do so he has sought our older vineyards that are found at higher elevations. The youngest vines are 35 years old and the oldest are 99 growing at an elevation that starts at 1,800 feet. These are wines for everyday, and priced accordingly. They are not simple wines, they are delicious and if you are looking for no more than that these wines are hard to beat. If you want more the wines speak of the varietals, and regions with some depth and complexity. Named after the winds that temper the region’s warm climate, these wines are a bridge from the old world to the new, perfectly representing a Californian making Spanish wines.

Classic Grenache flavors of kirsch. I really like how this wine shows the purity of the grape. Definitely a crowd pleasing wine with its ripe fruit profile, yet the fruit is never too sweet nor cloying. Really complex aromas. I would expect a wine with this kind of texture to cost twice the price and this is a wine that could easily go head to head with an entry level Chateauneuf-du-Pape. This Grenache is flat out delicious and a screaming deal at $12. Perfect to drink alone or with a wide variety of foods.
