"The 2007 Manga del Brujo was made by Norrel Robertson, MW, in partnership with the importer. It is a blend of 65% Garnacha, 15% Syrah, 15% Tempranillo, and 5% Mazuelo aged for five months in French and American oak. The Garnacha component was sourced from vines over 100 years of age. Opaque purple-colored, it offers up a toasty, smoky bouquet with aromas of mineral, black cherry, and blueberry. This is followed by a medium- to full-bodied wine with an elegant personality, a silky texture, intense, savory blue and black fruit flavors, superb balance, and 2-3 years of aging potential. This pleasure-bent wine will offer prime drinking from 2011 to 2020."
