Why We're Buying

Spanish wine might not be on the same level as Italy or France, but Comando G is changing that. La Bruja de Rozas is a grenache that rivals the elegance and grace of the Brunello of Tuscany and the pinot noir of Burgundy.

Dried strawberries and cherries with some bark and pine-needle notes. Black tea leaf and lavender, too. Full-bodied with chewy tannins, but they are fine grained and very pretty. Lots of black pepper. Needs time to open. Best after 2022.

The 2018 Rozas 1er Cru is one of my go-to wines from Comando G, as it delivers outstanding quality for its price. I had already tasted this before, but like the rest of the wines, I wanted to put it in the context of the full 2018 lineup and also against the still-unbottled 2019. The wine has evolved very slowly, keeping the profile—expressive, floral and open, beautifully textured with the granite fingerprint. Beautiful.
