Details
The team that makes up Comando G has received incredible renown in the wine world for their work with Garnacha in the Gredos Mountains west of Madrid.  No less than Eric Asimov of the New York Times has written about them and their wines.

La Bruja de Rozas is their village wine sourced from several vineyards in the vicinity of Las Rozas de Puerto Real.  We have a small amount of this as it is limited and highly in demand every year due to the rave reviews that critics continue to give it.

" Slate, blackberry and black-cherry aromas that follow through to a full body with density and tight, layered tannins. Some Spanish-cedar undertones. An opulent yet polished and silky mouth feel. Drink or hold" 95 points James Suckling.

"...It's from a vintage that feels very complete and balanced and delivered very healthy grapes, good yields and grapes with ripe flavors and very good freshness. The wine is juicy but also sharp and mineral, backward and nuanced; it's shy now, but it has great depth and is finely knitted, textured, mineral and salty. I think this will surpass the already-amazing 2016. It fermented and matured in oak vats of different sizes, yet there is such purity of fruit and the wine is so intense that the oak is completely transparent. I had the chance to drink this wine on repeated occasions, as I find it has an unbeatable price for the quality. It's a more complete version of the 2016 - it's pale, bright and transparent, spicy, elegant, nuanced, juicy but complex, with not only fruit but also violets and an herbal side, and it's characterful and a bit funky with finesse and a texture of chalk and granite. Like a Poulsard from Chambolle. High drinkability with aging potential." 93+ points The Wine Advocate
