An exotically perfumed bouquet evokes candied red fruits, Asian spices and black pepper, with a smoky topnote. Sappy, concentrated black raspberry and bitter cherry flavors gain sweetness with air and pick up notes of cola and clove. Finishes chewy and long, with slow-building tannins and lingering sweetness.
Wine Advocate 91 points - A fabulous value from Patrick Mata, the 2012 Gordo is a blend of 70% Monastrell and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon from an organic vineyard planted in 1970. Aged three months in French oak, it showcases the brilliant quality of the Mourvedre grape from this sunny appellation. The wine boasts an opaque ruby/purple color along with notes of lead pencil shavings, blackberries, black raspberries and a hint of blueberries. The sensational fruit characteristics are pure as well as vivid. This full-bodied, opulent, stunningly savory, expansively flavored 2012 can be drunk over the next 2-3 years.  (Nov 2014)

Vinous 90 points - (70% monastrell and 30% cabernet sauvignon; aged for three months in French oak): Vivid ruby.

A personal wine that pays tribute to Patrick’s Father. Produced from dry farmed organically grown vineyards. Vines are tended in Chalk soil at 713 m (2,339 ft) elevation. This type of soil and the elevation results in wines that exhibit greater freshness with lifted flavors.
Technical notes
70% Monastrell, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon

Food pairing
Try Gordo with blue cheese, stews, spicy chili and similar hearty dishes. This wine has the heft on the palate and spice to pair well with BBQ with serious heat, pulled pork sliders and “five alarm” BBQ chicken wings.
