Bodegas Alto Almanzora Red Blend Almeria Este 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2008 Este is composed of 50% Monastrell, 25% Tempranillo, with the balance Garnacha, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Merlot aged for 6 months in French and American oak. Purple-colored, it reveals a lightly roasted bouquet of black cherry and blueberry, underbrush, spice box, and violets. Supple, sweetly-fruited, and forward, this tasty, friendly effort has no hard edges. Drink it over the next 3 years. Bodegas Alto Almanzora is located in eastern Andalucia at 600-900 meters of altitude on slate and limestone soils. Winemaking is overseen by Rafael Palacios..." WA 04/10 "Dark ruby/violet. In interesting range of aromas that includes barbecue coals, blackberries, black plums, earth, wintergreen, and cigar...shows best with some decanting. 14% alc..." SWJ 09/10

Bodegas Alto Almanzora:
Our ancestors, the first people of Andalusia, lived in these mountains as far back as can be remembered. As did the artist, who many thousands of years ago, created the image that we chose to represent our cellar: A pregnant mare, whose fertility has blessed these fields up to our times. The star of this story: the vine, was here much before man every trod this land.
