“Ridiculously easy to drink.” We can’t take credit for the use of this phrase to describe this bottle, but we can agree that Josh Raynolds nailed it when he described the Lechuza Garanacha 2019. Consuelo and Jesus Gonzalez and their family have farmed vineyards between Madrid and Toledo for generations. Mentrida is home to old vine Garnacha. The Lechuza is made from vines grown in high altitude, granitic soil vineyards with extreme diurnal shifts in temperature; scorching hot, sun filled days and at times bitter cold nights.  The result? Well, we’ll let Mr. Raynolds tell you:

“Deep, bright-hued red. Red fruit liqueur, candied flowers and white pepper on the fragrant nose. Sappy, smooth and fruit-driven, offering cherry and Chambord flavors braced by a core of juicy acidity. Shows gentle spiciness on the clinging, red-fruit-dominated finish, which is shaped by subtle, harmonious tannins. This wine is ridiculously easy to drink.”

– Josh Raynolds
