Palate Profile

The winemaking technical team of Monasterio de las Viñas together with Joey Tensley, named ” Santa Barbara winemaking star” by Wine Spectator have captured the unique character of the Garnacha from Cariñena, by selecting small parcels of 40+ year old vines from the many diverse terroirs in Grandes Vinos portfolio of vineyards.

"I tasted the Old Vine Garnacha 2016 which was just was terrific. It had aromas of slate, eucalyptus, anis with deep red fruit notes. On the palate, it was generous, fruit foward and quite easy to drink. Kind of old world meet new world. Soft tannins with delicate nuances of cacao and cumin. This is a wine that delivers so much for the quality and it was a pleasure for me to rediscover it at the source. The Garnacha that goes in this wine is 40 years old and the wine see a slight passage in French oak for 4 months. This is a great wine to have for your weekday BBQ’s or even something more simple such as Serrano ham with tomato and bread which is something very classic to eat in Spanish Gastronomy."

Critic Awards

A ripe, sexy bouquet of mulled cherries, dried herbs, earth, and melted licorice. Rounded, supple and polished on the palate, it's another mouthful of a wine that over-delivers [Old Vine Garnacha Special Selection].

The 2016 Carinena Old Vine Special Selection gives up beautiful notes of black cherries, plums, new leather, and pepper, and hints of violets. It's juicy, vibrant, and fresh on the palate, with terrific fruit and a great finish. It's a smoking wine.
