This is a strikingly iconoclastic example of Spanish terroir. Goyo Garcia Viadero is a natural winemaker from the Ribera del Duero. In 2011, with the help of local viticultor Tomás Cobo, Goyo first produced wines from his mother’s home region of Cantabria under the Cobero label. Goyo and Tomás organically farm old head-pruned parcels planted on steep broken slate vineyards high in the Picos de Europa mountain range, not far from where Cantabria, Castilla y León and Asturias meet.

This is a single vineyard from a snow-capped mountainside in the Valle de la Bedoya, tucked away in the southwest corner of the Picos de Europa mountain range. While obscure it may be, it possesses a uniquely warm climate for Northern Spain, and it is also home of some of the most rare outcroppings of old Mencía and Palomino vines. The ultra-traditional Cobero Tinto is comprised of old-vine Mencía and Palomino, hand-harvested, destemmed, and pressed in an old-fashioned basket press. The grapes are co-fermented with wild yeasts in steel vat, raised 12 months in old French barriques, and bottled without fining, filtration, or added SO2. The resultant wine is viscerally spice-driven, with deeply inlaid floral, animal, and mineral character. It's medium-full bodied with assertive, but fine tannins and a pleasantly balanced and vibrant acidity.
