It's last call on the 2020 vintage of maybe the most unique wine in the entire store...Ladron del Palacio.
If you are not into BIG red wine, you can stop reading now. But this wine has become somewhat of a store favorite over the last 2 years, and it doesn't hurt the package is one of the coolest I have ever seen.
What wine are we even talking about here?
While consumers have been heaping praise online for this wine like the below:
We think the late Josh Raynolds summed up this wine perfectly with this unbelievable ability to convey what a wine tastes like through words.
What makes this stuff so special?
Many of you know and love "Escorlada" - the $20 showstopper from one of the first families of Spanish wine that we brought into the United States (the wine with the ships on the label).
Well, that wine has a big brother...and by big brother, we mean BIG.
This Spanish powerhouse comes from nearly century old garnacha vines, yielding some of the lowest tonnage yields I have ever heard of, and is aged in 100% new Taransaud French Oak (think the Ferrari of the barrel world).
When talking about low yields, let us take the Musigny vineyard for example - one of the top spots for Grand Cru Burgundy (Pinot Noir), where bottles start around $300. Le Musigny typically in a good year will yield some 3,500 liters of wine per hectare. The yields from the Garnacha vines that go into the Ladron yield just 700 liters per hectare (that means every 2.5 acres of vines at this site only yields 933 bottles of wine).
In Napa these bottles would cost $500 just based on that alone :)
In honor of Josh Raynolds we'll be drinking one tonight...but if you want one get while the gettin' is good! This is last call!!
