The 2012 Rumbo al Norte is a single-vineyard Garnacha from the one-horse village of Navarrevisca in Avila, at 1,200 meters altitude. The grapes fermented in a small oak vat and were transferred to two barriques. The nose is a little closed at first, feeling very shy and ungiving, you really have to coax it, so I recommend opening the bottle and decanting the wine well in advance. This is all about subtlety, about weightless fruit, flowers and wild small berries with a touch of minerality akin to chewing on chalk. The palate is medium-bodied, but feels light with precise flavors, very well-integrated acidity and weightless fruit. Again, this is an amazing, elegant Garnacha.||Comando G was the name used in Spain for one of those Japanese cartoon series of the 80s, where some kids were kind of super heroes. The three winemakers (Daniel G. Jiménez-Landi at the time with his family winery and now on his own, Fernando García of Bodegas Marañones and Marc Isart of Bernabeleva) met while studying in 2005, and started this joint project, Comando G, in 2008. They thought of themselves as the Comando G (Comando Garnacha, in this case), where their mission is to make the best Garnacha in the world. Since January 2013, Marc left to focus on his work at Bernabeleva and his family, while Daniel and Fernando continue the Comando G mission on their own. This is now their main project and where they are investing in their focus. They seem to go from strength to strength and are getting closer to their goal with some of their wines achieving world-class status! This is one of the most exciting new projects, not only in Gredos, but in the whole of Spain! eRobertParker.com.October, 2014
