Jimenez-Landi El Corralon Sierra de Gredos Mentrida 2018
Suckling sums it up pretty well: “A brambly summer-berry nose with some brambly and fragrant, sweet floral perfume, too. The palate has a very composed feel with impressive, ripe dark plums and cherries. Fresh and long with plenty of fine, layered tannin.” It’s dark and mouthcoating, too, with a killer-long finish of sweet cherry pie and blue fruits. Awesome! POUND THE TABLE price, guys --- will go fast!
Free ground shipping on 6 or more bottles.

Respect and love for the field and its fruit
IN THE ELABORATION OF OUR WINES WE SEEK BALANCE, FRESHNESS, FINESSE, ELEGANCE AND DEPTH. WE LOOK FOR WINES THAT REPRESENT OUR NATURE AND THE TYPICALITY OF THE SOILS, VARIETIES AND ENVIRONMENT.
OUR ELABORATIONS ARE VERY NATURAL. WE WORK WITH THE INDIGENOUS YEASTS OF OUR VINEYARDS WITHOUT USING CHEMICALS. WE TRY NOT TO BE TOO INTERVENTIONIST IN ORDER TO PRODUCE WINES THAT ARE HONEST AND OPEN TO OUR AREA AND TO THE NATURE AROUND US.
This wine is intense, expressive and full-bodied, a wonderful illustration of the predominately native Garnacha variety, with additional depth from the Syrah. The nose offers aromas of ripe red and black fruit, along with subtle notes of violet, toast and balsamic. The palate is powerful, juicy and well-balanced. A heavenly wine.
