LADY IN CHARGE:  At Castell d'Age there is not just ONE lady in charge (
Olivia Junyent), but 3 generations of Catalan women who have been doing their organic/biodynamic wine thing for over 50 years – and another woman making the wine.  Olivia’s now running the estate founded by her grandmother and works closely with Olga to continually do less to the wine – case in point: their proudly NAS Garnaxta!

This is biodynamically farmed Garnacha from Licorella, or slate, soils in Penedes, Spain, from the ladies at Castell d’Age.  We love the label of this zero-zero cuveé, which proudly proclaims what’s in it, and not - 100% Garnatxa, and 0% B.S.! And it shows!  Beneath the dark cloudy glass of the bottle, the deep cherry-colored juice sparkles with ruby highlights.  It’s got big, exuberant fruit but stays fresh and light on its feet, with forest berries, plush tannins and a pleasant mouth-puckering acidity.  Great with all the fall food.  Serve with a light chill for the best sips!
