On the flanks of Moncayo, rich, very stony clay soils, nurture Garnachas upward of 40 years old, vines and fruit surviving a battering by fierce cold, dry winds (notably in winter by the cold, dry Atlantic 'Cierzo') as only Garnacha can. The climate is extremely dry Continental (350-450mm in the hills), and grapes grow between 350 and 750 metres altitude. Isaac works in the highest, most extreme parts of Campo de Borja, in soils that are both the rockiest, and most iron-laden in the region. The Spanish Acquisition

This is serious Garnacha from younger vines and offers up classic expression of wild raspberries, garrigue, roasted game and pink peppercorns. There is a lovely core of sweet fruits that is offset with chewy long, ripe tannins that lead to a taught and youthful finish. There is deep set tone to the otherwise bright red fruit  that sets its part of some of its more fruit forward and juby cousins here in Aus. One to age possibly and easily will stand up to heartier winter  dishes. PWS
