2016 Pegaso (Telmo Rodríguez) "Arrebatacapas" Garnacha Cebreros

SKU #1508018 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2016 Pegaso Arrebatacapas is the second vintage of the single-vineyard bottling from Cebreros (even though I'm not sure if the 2015 has been released yet). The 2016 is more expressive and elegant than the initial 2015. This goes very much in line with the Pegaso Pizarra, with a little more grip and some more tannins, and it might require a little more time in bottle. There were only 750 bottles produced in 2016.

K&L Notes

This is Telmo Rodriguez’s Sierra de Gredos project, named after the Spanish car manufacturer. Take a quick minute, or two, and check them out on the web, you can see where the inspiration came from. The Sierra de Gredos are the mountains west of Madrid. This region was all but forgotten and the wines that were being made were done in bulk. Telmo saw the potential, and could help himself and started making wine here. The main varietal is Garnacha, the soils are primarily granite and as the name suggests they are at elevation in the mountains. Cebreros is the newly elevated appelation in the Sierra de Gredos, April 2019. Arrebatacapas is a steep, south-facing 2.1ha slope at an elevation of 1050m -1200m, with garnacha vines planted in 1953, surrounded by juniper, rosemary, and lavender. Pegaso Arrebatacapas perfectly combines power and complexity with the freshness and balance of garnacha grown on red slate soils. The farming at Pegaso is certified organic, and the wines are made with low intervention and minimal sulfur at bottling.

It took me a few times to say the full name of this wine and to do so correctly! This wonderful Garnacha tends toward a more "plush" style with dark, cherry fruit and anise notes. This does NOT mean that it is extracted, because it is not. It has fine, lightly grippy tannins and (light) herbal notes. Super interesting! Collectors take note...the production for this wine is teeny tiny! This ranks towards the top of my list as best Garnacha, ever.
