Introducing the 2013 Gracia, a Bordeaux Blend from the renowned Saint Emilion region of Bordeaux, France. This extraordinary red wine is a true masterpiece, capturing the essence of the terroir and showcasing the exceptional craftsmanship of the Gracia winery.

With its deep, opaque purple color, the 2013 Gracia immediately commands attention. The nose is a symphony of aromas, revealing notes of ripe blueberries, black berries, and incense, intertwined with hints of camphor and licorice. As the wine opens up, wafts of charcoal add a captivating smoky allure. The complex aromatics invite you to delve deeper into the glass, promising an unforgettable experience.

On the palate, this wine continues to impress. Surprisingly concentrated and opulent, it boasts a medium to full-bodied profile that envelopes the senses. The fruit flavors are abundant, with dark cherries and dark berries taking center stage. The purity and length of this wine are simply stunning, leaving a lasting impression that lingers on the palate. The tannins are polished and firm, enhancing the wine's structure and providing a silky texture that adds to its overall elegance.

Renowned wine critic Robert Parker awarded the 2013 Gracia an impressive 94 points, praising its fruit concentration and remarkable achievement in a challenging vintage. James Suckling, another prominent critic, bestowed a score of 93 points, commending its balanced and ultra-fine nature. Jeff Leve, from TheWineCellarInsider.com, also rated it highly with 94 points, highlighting the wine's softness, approachability, and lingering sweet dark cherry flavors.

Crafted from a blend of 65% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Franc, and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2013 Gracia is a testament to the expertise and dedication of the winemakers. With low yields of only 15 hectoliters per hectare, a mere 300 cases of this exceptional vintage were produced.

The 2013 Gracia is a true gem, embodying the essence of Saint Emilion and showcasing the heights that Bordeaux blends can reach. Enjoy this wine now to experience its youthful vibrancy, or cellar it for the next 10-12 years to witness its evolution into an even more extraordinary masterpiece.
