The 2008 Alto Moncayo Moncayo is a big, beautiful, full-bodied wine that evolves to its peak over 3 hours. The nose opens to intense aromas of blackberry and plum, with pepper and spice in the mix. The palate is strongly fruit forward at launch, with dense blackberry and plum creating a thick, sweet fruit paste in the center of the tongue, held in check and focused nicely in a full-bodied palate with strong tannins providing a framework for evolution. Notes of herbal flavors linger at the back, while pepper and spice add heat on the top, and a metallic coating seeps toward the front, making this a wine heavy and full but also varied and long. The lengthy finish maintains interest as vanilla, oak, tobacco and cocoa dance fleetingly through the thick array of flavors. The lively spice on the top saves this wine from becoming syrupy and lifts it from its heaviness to a cleaner, brighter finish than seems likely at first pouring. A pleasant, robust acidity helps both fruit and spice evolve over an hour and beyond, evoking balance, integration and harmony from a rough start. Between two and three hours, the big fruit subsides and moves to the background while herbal flavors elevate and dominate the finish, leaving a slightly astringent aftertaste. But for the pepper and spice on the top, the wine might become thin, but does not. At four hours and beyond, the herbaceous backend recedes and grapefruit becomes the dominant fruit, melding with continuingly strong acidity to render a pleasantly sour citric center.

Leuchtendes, dunkles Rot. Komplexes Bouquet, nebst Kirschfrucht auch Noten von dunklen Beeren, dezent rustikales Unterholz. Ueppige und recht „fette“ Struktur, viel süsse Extrakt. Stützendes Gerbstoffgerüst mit einem dezent bitteren Note, aber gut passend. Ein wuchtiger, barock anmutender, recht ungewöhnlicher Spanier

This polished red is fresh, focused and expressive, delivering black cherry, cassis, toast, cinnamon and smoke flavors. Plush, but has enough tannins for balance. Drink now through 2012. 500 cases imported. -TM Wine Spectator. A Grenache wine from Aragon in Spain. 2008 Alto Moncayo, Bodegas Alto Moncayo Veraton 750ml
