Bodegas Ateca Garnacha 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

93 Points - Jay Miller - The Wine Advocate "The 2005 Atteca Armas is sourced from a single Garnacha vineyard planted in 1909 at serious elevation. Malolactic fermentation occurs in new oak. The nose delivers spice box, toast, scorched earth, and black cherry. Large-scaled and full-flavored, this powerful effort conceals enough structure to support 3- 5 years of cellaring and should provide pleasure through 2025. Bodegas Ateca is a new partnership between the Gil family of Jumilla and importer Jorge Ordonez. The winery’s entry level Garnacha de Fuego is a notable value listed on the Best Buy chart at the end of this report."

Cherry flavors, full body, balanced flavors.

This would make an excellent house red. A definite "buy-again". What a bargain.
