Wine critics reviewsReviews by Parker

I loved the heady perfume of the 2018 Garnacha, which Marcos Eguren calls "very Atlantic," mostly from very old vines and high altitude, where the grapes ripen late. It's floral, with notes of grape pulp and all things red (watermelon, pomegranate), really showy and with very integrated oak (it matured in 225- and 500-liter oak barrels for 14 months). It's juicy, round and with chewy, fine tannins, very tasty and with a long, dry finish. 20,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in May 2020.
