"Here's yet another impressive Garnacha-based wine from the traveling Scotsman Norrel Robertson. There's a black-fruit component that's aided by dried oregano, thyme and briar. The mouth, however, is juicy and ripe, with Syrah-influenced flavors of spice and herbs de Provence. Finishes with licorice, pepper and perfect size. The best wine in Robertson's portfolio."
"There are 5000 cases of the 2007 Papa Luna, a blend of 70% Garnacha, 25% Syrah and 5% Mazuelo aged five months in French and American oak. The Garnacha was sourced from 70 to 100-year-old bush vines. Purple-colored, it offers up an alluring bouquet including garrigue notes, spice box, lavender, black cherry, and blueberry. This is followed by a velvety-textured wine with layers of savory fruit, a sense of elegance, complex flavors, and a lengthy, pure finish."
