This was my house wine last year. I probably drank at least a dozen bottles and a handful of magnums. The arrival of the 2018 has come just in time for the cooler months so I took a bottle home immediately to test drive. As hoped, the continuation of style and quality was immediately apparent. This is delicious drinking with the perfect balance of sheer charm and delight, mixed with interest and structure. Only light in colour, it is the perfect example of modern-day Grenache: pretty, delicate, vibrant and pure. It shows red berry fruit, a hint of reduction (which blows off with 5 minutes in the glass) and a chalky finish with fine and persistent tannin. It goes from primary fruit to chalk and tannin in a seamless and development of flavour. For me, it goes beyond being ‘moreish’ and borders on addictive. – Ches Cook, FWC.
I tasted a very young and recently bottled 2018 La Bruja de Rozas, their village Garnacha from the village of Las Rozas de Puerto Real. It's from a vintage that feels very complete and balanced and delivered very healthy grapes, good yields and grapes with ripe flavors and very good freshness. The wine is juicy but also sharp and mineral, backward and nuanced; it's shy now, but it has great depth and is finely knitted, textured, mineral and salty. I think this will surpass the already-amazing 2016. It fermented and matured in oak vats of different sizes, yet there is such purity of fruit and the wine is so intense that the oak is completely transparent. I had the chance to drink this wine on repeated occasions, as I find it has an unbeatable price for the quality. It's a more complete version of the 2016—it's pale, bright and transparent, spicy, elegant, nuanced, juicy but complex, with not only fruit but also violets and an herbal side, and it's characterful and a bit funky with finesse and a texture of chalk and granite. Like a Poulsard from Chambolle. High drinkability with aging potential. 53,478 bottles produced (the second largest vintage after 2016). It was bottled in August 2019. Drink 2021-2028. 93+ points. – Luis Guttierez for Robert Parker.
