2017 Denner Vineyards ‘The Ditch Digger’$76.00Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 94 ~ The 2017 Ditch Digger is made up of 55 percent Grenache, 20 percent Mourvèdre, 13 percent Syrah, 5 percent Cinsault, 5 percent Graciano and 2 percent Carignan. Medium ruby, it has bright, inviting scents of raspberries and red cherries layered with scents of powdered sugar, citrus peel, violet and lilac perfume with an earthy undercurrent. The medium-bodied palate is ultra layered and perfumed, with a pleasantly chalky frame and fantastic juiciness, finishing very long and fragrant. Lovely!
2018 Bodega Bernabeleva ‘Camino de Navaherreros’$21.00Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 90 ~ The young red 2018 Camino de Navaherreros comes from an extremely balanced vintage, when it rained when it was needed, the summer wasn't too warm and the wines turned out like a more complete version of the 2016s. To make a long story short, 2018 seems to be the finest Gredos vintage in the last few years, and that's quite evident in the Bernabeleva range, especially when tasted next to the 2017s. But there is no lack of ripeness here; the grapes ripened properly, and the wine has deep aromas and flavors, fine-grained tannins and some seriousness within its approachable style. A great vintage for Camino de Navaherreros.
