There must be something magical in Madrid. With four vintages and four back-to-back "sell-outs," we are featuring this fifth release of Navaherreros knowing customers will again be fighting over the last few cases.
On the outskirts of Madrid in a tiny village called Pelayos de la
Presa is a small winery whose wines are in such demand they rarely make it to the United States. There, wine bars and restaurants clamor for Camino de Navaherreros, a small production Grenache that shortly after release disappears within the city leaving none for the rest of the world to enjoy.
You may recall, we featured this wine two years ago and the wine sold out shortly thereafter. We have been eagerly awaiting it's return. Once again, a mere pittance of an allocation has been released to the United States.
The 2015 vintage of Navaherreros is a delicious wine that lives up to its reputation and more. It resembles a baby Chateauneuf-du-Pape and other Grenache based reds from France and Spain.
The vines of Navaherreros are over 80 years old and produce wonderful scents of strawberry, raspberry, rose, magnolia and Asian spices. Fresh and energetic fruit with sweet red berry flavors are unfettered by tannins. The spiciness repeats on the finish, which is long and pure.
Enjoy with steak, lamb or your favorite grilled fare. Enjoy now and over the next five years.
$16.95 per bottle / $203.40 per case
