Ateca Atteca Garnacha Calatayud Old Vines 2013

Winemaker's Notes:

The Bodegas Ateca Atteca is a deep cherry color. Intense aromas of red ripe fruit combine perfectly with the spicy notes of cacao, vanilla and licorice which correspond to a noble aging. It is very fresh and fruity in the mouth. It has a notable finish where fruity and spicy aromas come back via retro nasal. It is a magnificent expression of an elegant Garnacha from Aragon. Not yet reviewed; 2012 vintage rated 93 points by Peñín Guide to Spanish Wine: (100% garnacha). Colour: cherry, garnet rim. Nose: ripe fruit, spicy, creamy oak, toasty, complex, dark chocolate, earthy notes. Palate: powerful, flavourful, toasty, round tannins.

Very pleasant on the palate with fruit and vanilla overtones with just a faint hint of sweetness. Finish has a slight citrus note than lingers pleasantly. I really like this wine. I paired it very successfully with grilled chicken and roasted vegetables and had another glass after dinner for my dessert.
