Vintage

This single vineyard wine was produced exclusively with Syrah grapes. The vines are planted in bright, white limestone soil in the middle of pine trees that protect the vineyard from strong winds. The grapes produced here achieve a great sugar concentration and perfect ripeness levels.

It displays a deep, dark color with black cherry tones and a spicy, floral bouquet. The nose reveals an explosion of red berry fruit aromas. Balsamic, toasty notes also come through, brought by 17 months’ aging in new French oak barrels.

Smooth and elegant on the palate, this wine is amazingly expressive as well as powerful and very well balanced, followed by a lingering finish. Previous vintage years have earned up to 94 points in the American magazine Wine Spectator and won several gold medals in international competitions. It’s a wine full of pleasant surprises

Tasting Notes

(Robert Parker, 93 pts) The 2010 Pago La Garduna, their varietal Syrah from their Garduna vineyard, has chalky and sandy soil and is the cooler plot they have, which in 2010 seemed to work very well. As the plants are getting older their cycle seems to be getting longer and getting better adapted to the place. This is a spicy, smoky and meaty style of Syrah, with a vegetal side (think raspberry leaf) that provides freshness. The palate is medium-bodied with marked balsamic flavors, hints of the archetypical smoked bacon and tapenade, juicy and fresh. In short, this is great Syrah. Drink now-2020
