Critic Reviews:

Jeb Dunnuck: 90 Points   “A great value from a tiny region in Catalunya, the 2016 La Peluda (100% Garnatxa Peluda aged 12 months in demi-muids) offers classic notes of melted licorice, roasted herbs, and road asphalt as well as a rocking core of sweet kirsch and black cherry fruit. Medium to full-bodied, ripe, and layered, it’s not a heavyweight and has a charming, elegant, incredibly drinkable style.” JD

Wine Advocate: 91 Points   “Produced with the “hairy” strain of Garnacha called Garnacha Peluda, the 2016 La Peluda is an airy, fresh and elegant interpretation of the grape, from a strain that tends to deliver more delicate wines to start with. It still has 15% alcohol, so it’s not a shy wine; it’s a juicy and chewy Mediterranean red with good freshness and integrated oak. It matured in oak vats for 12 months. I liked the spiciness and the somewhat wild character of this red, which had some rusticity that gave it character. Tasty and sleek.” WA
