COMANDO G LAS UMBRIAS 2011

"Brilliant red. High-pitched aromas of red berries, rose and smoky minerals. Juicy and lithe on the palate, offering vibrant raspberry and boysenberry flavors with hints of allspice and floral pastilles. Silky and sweet on the strikingly long finish, which features fine-grained tannins and a hint of blood orange. (All Garnacha; aged for over a year in 500-liter French oak barrels.)"

"Here you find a more leesy character and a little fuller mouthfeel. However, the palate shows the austerity of the vintage in the relatively high acidity; it feels sharp and perhaps not as balanced as the 2012. With a little bit of patience it develops attractive aromas and flavors of malt and blood oranges, which makes you want to put your nose in the glass over and over again."

Comando G was the name used in Spain for one of those Japanese cartoon series of the 80s, where some kids were kind of super heroes. The three winemakers (Daniel G. Jiménez-Landi at the time with his family winery and now on his own, Fernando García of Bodegas Marañones and Marc Isart of Bernabeleva) met while studying in 2005, and started this joint project, Comando G, in 2008. They thought of themselves as the Comando G (Comando Garnacha, in this case), where their mission is to make the best Garnacha in the world. Since January 2013, Marc left to focus on his work at Bernabeleva and his family, while Daniel and Fernando continue the Comando G mission on their own. This is now their main project and where they are investing in their focus. They seem to go from strength to strength and are getting closer to their goal with some of their wines achieving world-class status! This is one of the most exciting new projects, not only in Gredos, but in the whole of Spain!
