Alto las Pizarras Old Vine Garnacha Calatayud Bodegas Y Vinedos del Jalon 2005

External Review by WineExpress.com:

Bodegas y Viñedos del Jalón has 2400 acres of vineyards, concentrated in the southern part of the Calatayud region, extend from the River Jalón to the north, deep into the Ibérian mountain range to the south. These vineyards are situated at altitudes of between 2000 and 3300 feet with the higher sites dominated by Old-Vine Garnacha. That’s where the name and the grapes come from for this bold red wine. 100% Garnacha from vines 70 to 100 years old hand harvested. The wine aged in new French oak barrels for 11 months. The Wine Advocate scored it 93 points saying "The 2005 Alto Las Pizarras takes things to a still higher level. A selectión of the best lots was put into 100% new French oak to complete malolactic where it remained until recent bottling. Toasty oak, black fruits and espresso roast aromas are followed by a full-bodied wine with supple, sweet cherry and black fruit flavors with no hard edges. Put this beauty in the cellar for 3-5 years and drink it over the following 15." Don't miss it while it's On Sale!!!

Bodegas y Viñedos del Jalón S.A. se fundó en 1.999 con la asociación de tres Bodegas de la Denominación de Origen Calatayud y la participación del Gobierno de Aragón y cuatro entidades financieras: I.A.F. (Instituto Aragonés de Fomento), Ibercaja, CAI, Multicaja, Cajalón, Bodega San Isidro (Maluenda), Bodega San Fabián (Mara) y Bodega Virgen del Mar y de la Cuesta (Munébrega). Creada para desarrollar el cultivo, la elaboración y la comercialización de vinos de calidad embotellados, jóvenes y de crianza, de las tres Bodegas, los orígenes de nuestra historia se remontan a los años 60 cuando se constituyeron estas bodegas agrupando todo el viñedo de los términos municipales de: Abanto, Acered, Alarba, Belmonte, Bijuesca, Calatayud, Carenas, Castejón de Alarba, Castejón de las Armas, Cimballa, Clarés de Ribota, El Frasno, Fuentes de Jiloca, Ibdes, Maluenda, Mara, Monterde, Montón, Morata de Jiloca, Munébrega, Nuévalos, Olvés, Orera, Paracuellos de Jiloca, Ruesca, Sediles, Terrer, Valtorres, Velilla de Jiloca, La Vilueña, Villafeliche, Villalba de Perejiles y Villarrolla. Bodegas y Viñedos del Jalón S.A. es fruto del carácter dinámico y emprendedor que la Denominación de Origen de Calatayud necesitaba para afianzarse en su mercado; es el motor de una nueva forma de entender la viticultura que no olvida el origen y la tradición de la que procedemos. Calidad, Profesionalidad y Futuro junto a “esas pequeñas cosas cotidianas de la vida” han sido el punto de partida para desarrollar una tradición vinícola de la que “aún quedan cosas por descubrir” y que queremos que esté “en boca de todos”.
