Atteca Garnacha has a deep, velvety texture derived from old vines, with lingering tastes of rich blackberry, blueberry and licorice and a subtle spiciness that's perfectly integrated with the smooth tannins. This is a wine I cannot seem to forget about, and still young so it should drink well for years to come. The complexity of the Garnacha is evident as it evolves nicely after opening. This is not a wine to rush through due to its complex and delicious appeal. You're going to want to save the label on this one!

Bright purple. Intensely floral bouquet offers scents of black raspberry, lavender, Indian spices and white pepper. Juicy dark berry flavors are complicated by notes of candied flowers and pepper and show no rough edges. The floral quality resonates on the spicy, long finish. I'd drink this over the next few years to take advantage of its vivacious fruit.

Inky purple. Ripe boysenberry and blueberry on the nose, with licorice and graphite adding complexity. Juicy dark berry preserve flavors show palate-saturating depth and impressive clarity, picking up smoky minerals with air. Energetic finishing notes of blackberry skin and candied licorice linger with impressive tenacity. According to the importer, the yield for this wine, made from vines reportedly 80 to 120 years of age, was less than one ton per hectare.

The 2008 Atteca was sourced from even older vines, 80-120 years of age in this case. Deep crimson-colored, it offers up an enticing perfume of spice box, violets, and black cherry. Supple-textured with excellent depth and concentration and plenty of savory fruit, it lacks only complexity but, at this price, who's complaining?

Minty black cherry aromas give it a solid opening, but there's also some mild cleanser and paint scents to the nose. The palate is basic, snappy, fresh and carries good weight, while the flavors are sweet, berry-oriented and softened by vanilla. A good Grenache with good balance.

Mitteldichtes, jugendliches violett-rot. Sehr frisches Bouquet, rote Früchte, floral, Gewürze. Mit etwas Zeit im Glas macht sich auch eine leichte Holz-Röstnote bemerkbar. Frischer und saftiger Wein, gut strukturiert aber auch mit einiger weicher Fülle versehen. Schöner, balancierter Grenache, dank seiner Frische und Struktur ein guter Essensbegleiter.
