Comando G La Bruja de Rozas 2019

93 Wine Advocate

Find out exactly why the Comando G has been elevated to nearly cult-like status in recent years. This one is such a beauty. It’s perfumed, floral, fresh and vibrant, gaining depth and complexity with a few years in the bottle. All are harvested by hand, native yeasts are used for fermentation in open top French oak casks, and matured in 500-700L French oak barrels, foudres, and clay amphorae. This results in compelling, unique and delicious wines from a region totally overlooked just a decade ago. Don’t miss out!

93 Points, Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
This is a village Garnacha from Las Rozas de Puerto Real, their first approach to the grape, trying to capture the essence of the fresh fruit and the fluidity of the wine. 2019 is a ripe vintage, and the wine is a little more powerful, juicy and balanced, with rich aromas and flavors. The wine matured in oak vats of different sizes, ranging from 1,500 to 6,000 liters. The 2019 effect seems to be quite mild here; the wine follows the profile of the 2018, despite being a little riper, and it’s still very balanced. There are notes of flowers, basil and a touch of bacon intermixed with the wild berries and herbs. There’s a little more concentration, and the tannins are a little chalkier and more austere. But there is no excess ripeness or anything out of place, and it has acidity and length and finishes dry and mineral.
