Quinta de 67 is winemake Rafael Canizares' homage to a generation. His generation. This is a 100% Garnacha Tintorera wine from vineyards planted in the 70s that boasts an explosion of color and flavor, with great complexity in its structure and notable elegance. Quinta 67 is a limited edition, which makes it even more special.

"Round and polished, this red delivers expressive ripe raspberry, blackberry, mocha and spice flavors, with firm acidity and fresh acidity that imparts liveliness. Bold, in the modern style. Drink now through 2024. 5,000 cases made, 1,000 cases imported."

A dark color and heavy aromas of mint and oak lead the charge on this fully extracted Garnacha Tintorera. A concentrated, gritty palate is home to spicy woody black-fruit flavors, while peppery wood-spice notes dominate a loaded finish. If you're in search of elegance, pass this by; it's all about extraction, oak and black-fruit character.
Born in 1967 in Las Mesas, Cuenca, Rafael's life has always been linked to wine - His great grand-parents passed their winemaking heritage through generations, which Rafael is currently doing himself.
Rafael studied oenology in Tomelloso (Ciudad Real) in 1988 and has ever since kept the same philosophy: "Mi job is to achieve the highest quality, from growing the grape to bottling the wine. My principles are baed in consistency and hard work"
