2018 Comando G 'La Bruja de Rozas' Garnacha, Sierra de Gredos, Spain (750ml)
Coming from the Sierra de Gredos mountains just west of Madrid, is Comando G. This fine Garnacha is the product of many years of friendship and hard work between Danny Landi & Fernando Garcia, as well as organic and biodynamic farming.
Notes from the Producer: Post university, the duo found themselves working in Spain’s Sierra de Gredos at the same moment. Daniel was working at his family estate, Bodegas Jimenez-Landi, while Fernando wasn’t too far away at neighboring Bodega Marañones. After many discussions (and glasses of local wine), the duo realized their shared passion for the region’s unique terrain and hidden vineyard sites. As a joint venture, the two began purchasing and renting the best vineyard plots they could find and officially founded Comando G three years later. Above all, Dani and Fernando shared a mutual passion for Garnacha, which was long considered as a ‘workhouse variety’ by many Spanish winemakers. However, after tasting many of the incredible examples hailing from Southern France and other parts of the world, the duo felt confident that they could make varietal bottlings that both rivaled some of the world’s most best, while simultaneously showcasing Sierra de Gredos’ unmatchable terroir.
