Wine Advocate 88 points - A new label, this young Garnacha called 2014 La Maldita, makes a reference to the difficulties of growing the grape in Rioja, which gave it the nickname”La Maldita,” the cursed one. This is a young-fruit driven red, bottled after a short stage in barrel and seems to have a whiff of carbonic maceration-like aromas, candy and licorice It seems like there is a little spritz in the palate making it lively and fresh, with unnoticeable tannins and juicy fruit. Very good value. 50,000 bottles produced.  (Apr 2015)

Wine maker notes
Incredibly fresh and fruit-forward with notes of strawberries, tart cherries, spring flowers, and loamy soil undertones in a medium-bodied, pure format. Vibrant acidity and silky tannins allow this easy-drinking red to go down smoothly. Aged predominantly in stainless steel on the lees for 3-4 months, with a percentage resting in French and American barrels. Enjoy with everyday favorites such as pizza, pastas, burgers, and grilled vegetables. Drink young.
