Winemaker's Notes

Gran Elias Mora is only produced in exceptional vintages. The vines from which this wine comes are more than 70 year old and are located in the Senda del Lobo, one of the most respected and famous vineyards of San Roman de la Hornija with stone and rocky soils. After 12 months in new French oak barrels there is a selection of barrels with an additional 5 months for the selected lots.

Critical Acclaim

"This red has an iron grip now, but there's impressive concentration, and once the tannins release, it shows rich cassis, coffee, anise and tar notes that unfold on the finish. Great density and balance."
95 Points

"The 2005 Gran Elias Mora was sourced from a single vineyard with 70+-year-old vines. It spent 17 months in new French oak and was bottled without filtration. Purple/black in color, it offers a distinguished bouquet of pain grille, scorched earth, violets, lavender, blackberry, and licorice. This leads to a powerful, full-bodied, opulent wine with layers of flavor and lots of ripe tannin. The wine is balanced but will require patience. At least a decade of cellaring is warranted and it should continue to drink well through 2035.

"Inky ruby color. Hugely aromatic, alluring bouquet of blackberry and cherry compote, with suave oak spices and cured tobacco adding complexity. Lush and creamy on the palate, with slow-building acidity contributing energy and cut to the sweet dark berry and candied cherry flavors. Tannins build on the finish, which strongly echoes the sweet dark berry qualities. This is already really seductive."
