Wine AdvocateThe 2012 Breca from Calatayud is 100% old-vine Garnacha (from vines planted between 1925 and 1945) made from yields of less than one ton of fruit per acre. Fermented in stainless steel tanks and then transferred to new to 3-year-old French oak casks for 21 months, this outstanding red is the poor man's Priorat. Mineral notes of wet slate and gun flint are intermixed with blackcurrant, black cherry and cassis fruit in this dense, full-bodied, pure, lavishly rich, intense Spanish red. It is hard to believe what one can get at this price point if the importer and wine producer are committed to high quality.

Wine SpectatorCola and balsamic notes frame a core of ripe plum and boysenberry in this plush red. Dense, with a firm backbone that yields to black olive and smoke notes on the finish. Assertive. Drink now through 2020. 5,000 cases made.
