Fresh nectarines and white fruit with a hint of stones and herbs. Fresh and a tad phenolic on the palate with a medium body and a tight and fruity finish. It is oh so drinkable, oh so loveable. Feels like your first crush. One to remember.
Vinos del Viento is a project that focuses on Garnacha and Cariñena (Grenache and Carignan) from the region that is the origin for both varieties, Aragon. All of the DO’s of Aragon are represented in the portfolio; Campo de Borja, Calatayud, Carinena and Somontano. Winemaker Michael Cooper, who is a native to California, looks for purity and freshness in his wine. To do so he has sought the older vineyards that are found at higher elevations. The youngest vines are 35 years old and the oldest are 99 and the lowest elevation in 1800 feet. Named after the winds that temper the region’s warm climate these wines are a bridge from the old world to the new, perfectly representing a Californian making Spanish wines. Luis Gutierrez writes: "Vinos del Viento is the project of winemaker Michael Cooper and his wife. They produce wines in different appellations of Aragón, Campo de Borja, Cariñena, Calatayud and Somontano, often with local grape varieties. They started in 2013 and produce 25,000 bottles."
