Review:

Barón de Ley offers us, with its range of single varietal wines, the chance to get to know individually four of Rioja's most common varieties: the Maturana, an indigenous grape now almost extinct; the Graciano, a grape of gracefulness and distinction; the Tempranillo, the Rioja grape par excellence; and the Garnacha, the most sensual and exuberant Mediterranean grape, and showcased in this wine.

At the moment among Rioja wines, we're still coming across very few single varietal Garnachas, yet they have a growing number of keen admirers. Combining the Rioja terroir and the fine qualities of this sunny Mediterranean, red-fruit grape produces delicious results. Here you have a prime example: an honest, floral and very fresh Garnacha, which undergoes a short and very respectful ageing, just six months in large French oak casks; a non-ostentatious, thoroughly likeable Garnacha with a freshness and woodland character that makes us describe it as halfway between an Atlantic and a Mediterranean, a Garnacha with sea and mountain influences.

The Barón de Ley Garnacha is more than just a pleasant wine, it's extremely pleasurable and complete, both on the nose and palate. Modest, but firm and authentic. It offers a combination of wild countryside herbs and damp leaves with smoky hints, saline touches and ripe, yet still smooth, red fruit — cherries, plums and raspberries. It definitely has a Rioja character, some of its nuances might well remind us of classic Riojas (its damp notes, its special refinement...), but it isn't, it has its own personality, as a wine, and also as a Garnacha: a very good Rioja Garnacha. A real pleasure to drink. Juicy and mature, but always emanating freshness, with acidity clearly present. Sweet, yet having a dry undertone of tobacco and cedar. Lovely and balanced, with plenty of volume. Particularly interesting is the finely polished feel that its silky tannicity and fruitiness leave on the tongue, and a background of hazelnuts, the skins, on the finish. An elaborate piece at a fantastic price.
