P.S. Garcia Bravado 2016

Itata Valley, Chile

$23.75 / each

Description:

This laser-focused, beautifully polished blend of Syrah, Carignan, Petit Verdot, Grenache and Mourvedre was sourced from a hillside vineyard in Chile's Itata Valley called Piedra Lisa that was 1 day away from being ripped up since it was long considered to be “useless old-vine Pais.” Little did the owners know that these were 120 year old original rootstock vines from Spain - some of the oldest, most preserved vinifera vines on the planet. Expect a very impressive wine full of fresh bramble berries, lilacs and violets.
