2017 La Dama, Domaines Lupier, Navarra
Under 7,000 bottles were produced of this, which comes from 27 separate sites, dating back to 1903. This is one classy Garnacha. On the nose, rose petal and strawberries, and a hint of blood orange. The palate is intense and structured, with a core of red fruit, notes of cinnamon spice, and just a hint of thyme and other mediterranean herbs. For a warm vintage this is so finely judged, with wonderful acidity and a finish that lasts for minutes. Outstanding.
