Burgo Viejo Rioja Old Vine Garnacha
Bodegas Burgo Viejo
Spain - La Rioja - Rioja

Burgo Viejo's tribute to the flagship grape variety of Rioja Baja. Garnacha has been grown in Alfaro for many centuries, in perfect balance with the local soils and climate. This results in intensely fruity wines; full-bodied with velvety soft tannins.

Deep and brilliant cherry color. Red wild berries, violet and subtle spice on the nose. Rich, long, and very smooth finish.

wplogo"Spicy blackberry jam, spiked with wild herbs. That’s this juicy garnacha, which wants to wash down the burgers or sausages from your late-summer cookouts. ABV: 13.5 percent.- Dave McIntyre"

vinous logo"Deep, bright-rimmed ruby. Vibrant red fruits aromas gain urgency with air and pick up an appealing floral quality. Silky and seamless in texture, offering open-knit raspberry and cherry flavors that become spicier on the back half. In a plush, emphatically fruity style, finishing juicy and quite long, with soft tannins framing the exuberant fruit. - Josh Raynolds"

jeb dunnuck logo 250"This estate turned out an outstanding 2016 Old Vine Garnacha, which is 100% varietal brought up all in tank. Classic notes of darker cherries, currants, tobacco, and cedary herbs all flow to a medium-bodied Garnacha that has plenty of fruit and spice, a rounded, layered texture, and tons of charm. It’s a terrific value and should keep nicely for 2-4 years."
