Calatayud Old Vines Atteca 2007
91 points Josh Raynolds (IWC): (100% garnacha, from vines reportedly 80 to 120 years of age)... Ripe boysenberry and blueberry on the nose, with licorice and graphite... 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...
Rating 89: Very balanced wine on the fruity side what would be normal for Granache. long nice nose with berry aromas. Overall elegant fruity wine. I paid $13
Along with the ripe fruit I got lots of smoke and meaty notes from this bottle. It was very unique and welcome change up.
I think I had a corked bottle. The last vintage was very good. I'll give it one more try.
I liked this a lot. It worked very well in two wine reductions I made.
