Camino de Navaherreros comes from the outskirts of Madrid in a tiny village called Pelayos de la Presa. It is a small winery whose wines are in such demand they rarely make it to the United States. There, wine bars and restaurants clamor for Camino de Navaherreros, a small production Garnacha that shortly after release disappears within the city (and tends to disappear from our shelves pretty quickly too).
Navaherreros is a delicious wine that lives up to its reputation and more. It resembles a young Chateauneuf-du-Pape and other Grenaches from France and Spain. The vines of Navaherreros are over 80 years old and produce wonderful scents of strawberry, raspberry, rose, magnolia and Asian spices. Fresh and energetic fruit with sweet red berry flavors are unfettered by tannins. The spiciness repeats on the finish, which is long and pure.
"The young red 2018 Camino de Navaherreros comes from an extremely
balanced vintage, when it rained when it was needed, the summer wasn't
too warm and the wines turned out like a more complete version of the
2016s. To make a long story short, 2018 seems to be the finest Gredos
vintage in the last few years, and that's quite evident in the
Bernabeleva range, especially when tasted next to the 2017s. But there
is no lack of ripeness here; the grapes ripened properly, and the wine
has deep aromas and flavors, fine-grained tannins and some seriousness
within its approachable style. A great vintage for Camino de
Navaherreros." 90 points The Wine Advocate
