"The otherworldy 2016 Rumbo Al Norte had my head spinning for a good couple of hours. I tasted from two bottles, one opened the day before and one more recently opened, and the wine hadn't deteriorated, on the contrary, the bottle opened the day before was more focused and showed more precision. Talk about a wine with a high potential for developing in bottle... It has some earthy/mineral character that somehow reminded me of some wines from Domaine Leroy in Burgundy with some Rayas thrown in. I have followed the wines from this amazing vineyard from the first vintage (2010), one of the most beautiful I know and I have been loving them from the very first minute. 1,361 bottles were filled in March 2018. Drink: 2019-2030."

"Everything in 2016 worked to make it really magical, as it is a complete and very harmonious wine, combining power and elegance. It is a wine that made my heart beat faster."

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.

Rumbo al Norte is the most generous of the single parcel wines. It comes from a 0.3 hectare plot of mixed Garnacha vines and gigantic boulders on sandy mountain soils. The fruit tends towards darker flavors with an altogether sweater impression to the fruit and a spicy backbone. Same story here, hand harvested, natural yeast fermentation. long maceration and 12 months in a single 600 liter French oak foudre.

  • Drink: 2019 - 2030
  • Production: Very limited: 1.361 bottles + 30 magnums
  • Treatment: 12 months in two 600-liter barrels of French oak
  • Remarks: OTHERWORLDLY WINE FROM A MAGICAL VINTAGE THAT WILL MAKE YOUR HEART BEAT FASTER: the 2016 Rumbo al Norte must be the best wine ever produced by Comando G so far... by far!!!
  • Packaging: In OWC[6]
