About This Wine:

Bodega Niño Jesús, founded in 1978 within the DO Calatayud denomination. This is an agricultural co-op specialized in grape and cherry production. There are 150 grape growers in the co-op, tending 330 hectares (815 arces) of vines with an average age of more than 30 years. The principal grape variety is Garnacha (also called Garnacha Tinta del Monte or "Red Garnacha from the hills"). Other varieties planted include Tempranillo, Syrah (recent) and the white Macabeo (a.k.a. Viura).

Figaro is 100% Garnacha, made from a selection of the best grapes grown in the oldest vineyards. While not truly an "oaked wine", a short stay in oak barrels provides a nice spicy flavor boost.


What Does It Taste Like?

"Made at the Bodega Nino Jesus cooperative owned by some 150 grape growers. This 100 percent Garnacha is medium ruby in color, revealing fruity red plum aromas accented by vanilla coming from a short stay in oak barrels. Has a soft sweet attack of raspberry and very ripe plum fruit with a touch of vanilla spice. Although not very complicated, this is an honest, pleasing wine, and a good value, too." -Robert Parker, January 2008


Ratings & Reviews:

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar - (2009 vintage):
"Bright violet. Dark berry and cherry aromas show a jammy aspect. Supple and gently sweet, with good lift to its black raspberry and boysenberry flavors. Smooth and broad on the finish, leaving behind a hint of spiciness. Extremely easy to drink and an excellent value. " - Stephen Tanzer (Sept/Oct '11)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:

"The 2009 Figaro Tinto is 100% Garnacha which had a brief exposure to oak. Cherries, cinnamon, clove, and rose petal compose the nose of this spicy, savory, nicely balanced red. Drink this very good value over the next 3-4 years." - Jay Miller (Jun 2011)
