Winemaker's Notes:

Der <strong>Monte Otón</strong> ist am Gaumen fruchtbetont und sehr ausgewogen. Leuchtende rubinrote Farbe mit violetten Schattierungen. Frische Himbeer- und Erdbeeraromen mit feinen, floralen Nuancen. Dieser sortenreine, spanische Wein aus der Region DO Campo de Borja zeigt eine gute Struktur, mit einem reichhaltigen, weichen Abgang. Ein typischer Wein der Garnacha Frucht.

Although the history of the city of Borja takes us back to the beginnings of the Paleolithic period, it wasn’t until the 4th century before Christ, in the heart of the Celtiberian period, when thanks to classical and numismatic written sources the name of this village came to light: Bursao. With the passing through Bursao of different civilizations like the Romans, Visigothic Hispania and the Muslims we have inherited architectural remains and above all, the natural inclination of its people towards agriculture and more particularly viniculture. Of equal importance was the implementation of artisanal techniques that today endure as living proof of the cultural richness of the former Bursao today known as Borja. During the I and II centuries, before our time, it used to mint bronze coins, ases and dividers as a symbol of its autonomy. On the obverse of the as we can see a celtiberian rider armed with a lance, riding on the writing of the name of the city in the native alphabet. The emblem adopted by the winery as a sign of identity. Read less

Fascinating wine at this price. Light wine with great berry fruit at the front quickly followed by dry, metallic and peppery tannins. Very few wines at this price are so complex, managing fruitiness with dryness, a start with a finish. In some ways Monte Oton calls to mind a bastard (in a good way) Pinot Noir with the dryness of a thin Pinot and the berry mouth of a heavier one. The metallic twang after the first taste of fruit is one of the wine's most notable effects. I found this totally enjoyable.

Lovely velvet burgundy color - strong aromas of berries - heavy taste tones of blackberries - pleasant to drink, seemingly light to medium body

My local wine shop sells this for $5 a bottle. It's a steal.

Hard to go wrong with a Garnacha. They're very cheap and they've got all the boldness and fire one expects from a good Spanish wine. This one was no exception. Less sweet than a Rioja or Tempranillo. Has a bitterness and mineral quality to it. I can imagine that it really was grown in the desert at the foot of a mountain.

On the spot and sweet, with black cherry and roundness on the nose. Plays above its price league via ripe plum and berry flavors, bounce, body and build. Whole, concentrated and shows good structure, depth and character. About as good as inexpensive Garnache gets.

The wine shows bright and full Garnacha notes of ripe black fruits, as well as raisins, blueberries, and plums, and it's even showing some overripeness. The mouth and finish are warm and relatively gentle. Drink now or in the next several years.

Plump and velvety, this fruity red offers plum, blackberry and tangerine flavors, accented with vanilla and licorice. Not muscular, but generous. Drink now through 2012. 5,000 cases imported. -TM The 2009 Monte Oton, also 100% Garnacha, is a step up. A glass-coating opaque purple color, it is richer, denser, and more layered than the Vina Borgia. Drink it over the next 2-3 years. Here's another good value red from Borsao. It's about as potent and packed a wine as you'll find for $7, and while it's jumpy, young and aggressive, it's also full of jammy black fruit, sticky extraction and firm tannins. A classic mouthfiller with spunk, color and heft. M.S.

Round and juicy, showing rich, ripe cherry and raspberry fruit, with sweet vanilla accents, light tannins and just enough acidity to keep it all lively. Drink now through 2014.

This lean red offers cherry, herbal, mint and tobacco flavors in a supple texture over firm tannins. Nervy and intense, with a slightly green edge. Garnacha. The better of two bottles. Drink now.

The 2008 Monte Oton is more expressive aromatically. Spicy and vibrant on the palate and with a bit more depth and structure, this crowd-pleaser should also drink well for at least another 3-4 years.
