The 2021 La Bruja de Rozas is their edgiest and most austere mineral and soil-driven version of their entry-level red. It's herbal, with no concession for fruit, and it has electricity and grip. It's a good preview of what's to come from 2021. It has a lot of 2018 and 2016 characteristics, a cool summer, a year with rain and even some during harvest that complicated matters and made them lose some grapes, but there's more grip, more minerality, more depth, layers and subtleness. It needs time in the glass, and my guess is that at age eight it's going to reach an outstanding level. A grown-up Bruja, it’s more for soil fanatics than the general public, and it’s one to lay down in your cellar (by the case) while you drink your 2020s. There were 55,184 bottles produced. It was bottled in August 2022.
The calling card wine for Comando G, this beauty is made from old vines at 50-80 years from purchased fruit and from the Comando G vines, all 100% Gredos but accessible now from sandy soils and slightly lower altitudes! The village wine Rozas de Brujas is amazing in that it combines quality with QUANTITY! The wines are better than ever across the board, with incredible freshness, precision, and detail.
