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, Carinena 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 and the lowest elevation in 1800 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. Luis Gutierrez writes: "Vinos del Viento is the project of winemaker Michael Cooper and his wife. They produce wines in different appellations of Aragón, Campo de Borja, Cariñena, Calatayud and Somontano, often with local grape varieties. They started in 2013 and produce 25,000 bottles."

If you are like me, you haven't had a lot of Garnacha Blanca. In fact, I'm pretty sure that I've only tried less than a dozen in as many years. This little bugger is a delight with a nose of lemon and lime, light minerals, and background white flowers (jasmine or lilies, I can't decide). On the palate, a little juicy with peach, pear and pineapple. Too much fun not to drink!
