PAPA LUNA 2010

Papa Luna begins as bush vine grapes in the slate studded Jiloca valley at 2,600 feet elevation. The blend consists of 70 %Garnacha ( 70 to 100 year old vines), 25 % Syrah, and 5 % Mazuelo. The wild mountain herbs amongst the vineyards give rise to the distinctive varietal aromas and garrigue character in the wine. This Calatayud D.O. offers one of the most unique areasin Spain for old vine Garnacha and is set to follow Priorat as a cutting edge region for Garnacha bases wines and world class winemaking. After individual varietal fermentation, the blended wine spends 5 months in French and American barrels. When the wine is poured, you are struck by the deep purple color and crimson rim. The nose provides aromas of raspberry and cherrypunctuated by herbs and vanilla. This is a full-bodied wine with plenty of ripe fruit, fine velvety tannins and crisp acidity.Papa Luna takes its name from Pedro Martinaz de Luna, born near the Calatayud vineyards, who served as the last Pope to reign in Avignon during the dual Papacy of the 15th. century.
