Winemaker Notes

Papa Luna is a deep purple with crimson rim. The nose shows raspberry and cherry aromas punctuated by herbs and vanilla. The palate has full-bodied fruit with fine tannins and crisp acidity. The finish is long, with notes of smoky vanilla.

Wine Enthusiast
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.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
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.

Escoces Volante, Spain
Escoces Volante Winery Image
Norrel Robertson, MW the winemaker spent the past five years in Calatayud searching out individual blocks of fruit in order to produce a wine of massive intensity. Calatayud offers one of the most unique areas in Spain for old vine Grenache and is set to follow Priorat as a cutting edge region for Grenache based wines and world class winemaking. The Grenache was carefully sourced from only the highest elevation slate vineyards around the villages of Acered and Alarba. Yields from the 70-100 year old bush vines did not exceed 20 hl/acre. The Syrah was hand harvested from 25 year old vines on two selected parcels. Norrel feels that the fruit from these sites is excellent and delivers wonderful minerality and herbal undertones within these fruit forward offerings.

Known for its bold, heady, rustic and age-worthy red wines, Spain is truly a one-of-a-kind wine-producing nation. A great majority of the country is hot, arid and drought-ridden, and since irrigation has only been recently introduced and (controversially) accepted, viticulture has sustained—and flourished—only through a great understanding of Spain’s particular conditions. Large spacing between vines allows each enough resources to survive and as a result, the country has the most acreage under vine compared to any other country, but is usually third in production.

Most planted and respected is Tempranillo, the star of Spain’s Rioja and Ribera del Duero regions. Priorat specializes in bold red blends, Jumilla has gained global recognition for its single varietal Monastrell and Utiel-Requena has garnered recent attention for its reds made of Bobal.
