Details
We love this big bottle of Garnatxa Peluda from this outstanding family owned producer, Herencia Altes.  Typically this goes for another $10 to $20 a bottle, but we scooped these up on a deal.

Luis Gutierrez of The Wine Advocate gave this a 92 point review and wrote, "Produced with a specific strain of Garnacha, Garnacha Peluda or hairy Garnacha, the 2015 La Peluda is a new bottling from lime and limestone soils planted with the strain that tends to produce fresher and lighter juice with higher acidity. It fermented in stainless steel with malolactic in barrels and a further ten months in 500-liter French oak barrels. There is a sappy spicy character to this red that I loved, cracked peppercorn with a wild side that made me think of a Syrah from Valais. It's really aromatic and showy. The palate is very refined, with an herbal twist that provides great freshness, perhaps from a relatively early harvest. Impressive!!"

Definitely agree!
