A final tank sample of the 2004 Altos de la Hoya Monastrell Ungrafted Old Vines (8% Grenache is included in the blend) exhibits a dense ruby/purple color along with surprising elegance, sweet blackberry, smoky fruit, plenty of depth, ripe tannin, and admirable definition as well as finesse for a wine of this price range and region. It is a fabulous value that should be enjoyed over the next 2-3 years.

Chock full of big, rich black fruits, this wine manages to maintain substantial elegance in spite of its power. Layered and lush, it is a fruit bomb to indulge in.

The 2003 Altos de la Hoya Monastrell Ungrafted Old Vines does not reveal any of the vintage's overripe character. Its deep purple color is accompanied by aromas of scorched earth, black fruits (primarily sweet blackberries), and espresso, a terrific attack, medium to full body, fine freshness, good definition, and a long, heady finish. It is a fabulous value that should be enjoyed over the next 2-3 years.

Inky purple. Deep, smoky, seductively perfumed bouquet of dark berries, macerated cherries, licorice and Indian spices. Powerful blackberry and cassis flavors are surprisingly lively, with notes of black cardamom and candied violet adding complexity. A zesty note of cracked pepper adds snap to the long, spicy, subtly sweet finish. Once again, this is probably the top value I found in my annual tastings of new releases from Spain. Some of the vines in this plot reportedly date back to 1872.
