"The first wine ever produced here is the 2014 Garmón, pure Tempranillo from a diversity of villages all in the province of Burgos, La Aguilera, Moradillo or Baños-Tubilla. All grapes were destemmed and the wine aged in 50/50 new and used French barriques for 16 months. It's quite smoky (smoked bacon) with plenty of spices, generously oaked in general. The sweet spices are combined with sweet fruit, a sensation perceived mainly in the palate. I'd say it's quite typical of the Mariano García style, keeping the Tempranillo character of the grapes in the cooler zone of the appellation, perfumed and with some oak tannins to be resolved by some more time in bottle. This was produced in the Aalto winery, while they build their own space in the village of Olivares de Duero." Luis Gutierrez
