COMANDO G TUMBA DEL REY MORO 2016

"The fifth vintage of the single vineyard of ungrafted vines at 1,100 meters altitude, the 2016 Tumba del Rey Moro was simply phenomenal. It had floral and herbal aromas (oregano?), with a textured palate, vertical, fresh and long, and dissolves towards the finish and leaves a mineral and tasty sensation on the palate, call it mineral, salty or umami. It has a tad more finesse than the Umbrías from this very same year. 1,317 bottles were filled in March of 2018. Most (if not all) of these wines are very drinkable when young, but some have the inner energy that, most likely, will translate in a long life in bottle. Drink: 2019-2027."

"Comando G has produced their finest wines in 2016. It's really a killer vintage, and what's amazing is that it combined quality with QUANTITY! The wines are better than ever across the board, with incredible freshness, precision and detail. There are a couple of new reds, one from the Tamboril vineyard where, until now, they have produced their only white, and from another plot nearby the Rumbo al Norte vineyard called La Breña."

Tumba del Rey Moro is an absurd vineyard. It has all the appearance of the aftermath of an ancient landslide with several small natural terraces irregularly planted with vines at 1,100 meters. Here you can find a similar granitic sandy soil as their other sites, but with more pink than grey granite as well as more quartz. Like its siblings it is pale in color, but tasting it makes you wonder if this is what Marcel Lapierre could have done at Château Rayas had he the chance. Grenache (60–70 years old) are hand-harvested, fermented with natural yeast in open vats and aged 12 months in 500-liter and 700-liter French oak barrels.

Comando G's latest Garnacha red, the new Tumba del Rey Moro, is unique, razor sharp, completely over the top, and extremely limited... in short: Garnacha like never tasted before.

  • Drink: 2019 - 2027
  • Production: 1.317 bottles, 50 magnums
  • Treatment: 12 months in a 700 liter crates and 500 liter French oak barrels
  • Remarks: This fifth vintage (2016) of the Comando G Tumba del Rey Moro is one step up and for many the very best so far...
