2020 Comando G Las Umbrias Garnacha
Slightly darker, deeper and less ethereal on the nose than usual, the 2020 Las Umbrías has a lot of grip on the palate and is an earthier vintage of Umbrías, not the ethereal wine like the 2018, despite being the year with less alcohol (13.5%). It was a high-yielding year, and they picked the grapes during heavy rain, so they had to dry the grapes with warm air before putting them in the vat. Umbrías is possibly their most fragile grand cru, and it suffers under certain conditions. It seems to have suffered a bit in 2020, but it still has the elegance of Umbrías, the iron-like sensations from Rozas de Puerto Real and the balance and subtleness in a more earthy way. 2,559 bottles and 40 magnums were filled in March 2022. 95 points - Luis Gutierrez - The Wine Advocate, May 2023.
