Alto Moncayo Alto Mancayo 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

2006 Bodegas Alto Moncayo Garnacha Campo de Borja93ptsIWC"Deep ruby with a bright rim. Impressively complex, seductive bouquet of dark berry preserves, tobacco, graphite and smoky Indian spices. Pliant black raspberry and candied cherry flavors are enlivened by zesty minerals and firmed by fine-grained tannins. An exotic floral pastille quality emerges with air and carries into the finish, which is strikingly sweet, lively and persistent."

This plush, dense red shows coffee and spicy oak, with berry and wild plum fruit and accents of licorice and black pepper. The tannins are firm but well-integrated, and this finishes warm and spicy. Modern and alluring. Drink now through 2012. 600 cases made.`-Wine Spectator 92 Points`Deep ruby with a bright rim.

An exotic floral pastille quality emerges with air and carries into the finish, which is strikingly sweet, lively and persistent. I can't believe that this wine bears the touch of the same guy who is partially responsible for inflicting Australia's R wines on us.`-Josh Reynolds Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar 93 Points

93 points from Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: `The 2006 Alto Moncayo Veraton is the winerys entry level and is 100% Garnacha sourced from vines ranging in age from 35 to 92 years. It was aged in new French and American oak for 17 months and bottled without filtration. It offers up a sensational aromatic array of pain grille pencil lead earth notes wild black cherry and black raspberry. Dense layered and full-flavored on the palate this hedonistic effort is balanced enough to evolve for several years but can be enjoyed now. It is an awesome value. Alto Moncayo is a joint venture of importer Jorge Ordonez and bacon baron Dan Philips. The winemaker is the grizzled veteran vigneron Chris Ringland an imposing team.` (02/09) 91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: `Saturated ruby. Very spicy on the nose which displays blackberry blueberry white pepper and cinnamon qualities. Sappy dark berry flavors combine intensity with depth picking up candied licorice with air. Turns sweeter on the fin
