Bodegas Rafael Cambra – Rafael’s family owns a nursery where they grow vine stocks for many famous bodegas. Rafael studied oenology in France and started his very small bodega when he discovered a 40 year old Monastrell vineyard. Rafael spends nearly all of his time in his vineyards and in his laboratory where he experiments with innovative blends.

Vineyards – In addition to having old vineyards in a dry climate that produce low yields, Rafael does up to 3 green harvests each year, where he removes any grape clusters that are not healthy, enabling the remaining grapes to receive a higher percentage of the nutrients from the vine.

Soplo – A Soplo is ‘A special moment that occasionally surfaces as a treasured memory reminding us of the joy of life.’ The front label is an eclectic picture of the side profile of a person’s face with an open door representing the release of a treasured memory.

Tasting notes: Dark garnet color. Fresh fruity aromas of wild raspberry, clove, and lime leaf leading into a vibrant, satin smooth palate with a medium body finishing with soft tannins. Here is a juicy and fresh Garnacha with endless food pairing possibilities.
