External Reviews for Dominio de Atauta
Inky purple. Very rich aromas of dark cherry, plum and mocha. Displays fresher berry qualities on the palate, with slow-mounting minerality adding welcome lift. Deep, chewy and serious, with powerful tannins contributing structure.
A dense, rich texture carries dark flavors of coffee, blackberry, tar and game in this red. A bit austere, but has focus and detail, with good typicity in the smoky, gamy character. Best from 2010 through 2016.
Bright red. Spicy red fruit aromas offer impressive clarity and a variety of floral and mineral qualities. Laid-back redcurrant and cherry flavors are deep and focused, with lightly chewy tannins adding grip. Finishes with a dried cherry quality, racy minerality and impressive persistence.
What a beauty! Masculine aromas of black fruits, cola and oak sit there begging to be sipped, while the lush, deep palate is home to dense blackberry, cassis and chocolate flavors. Lively but dense, with tannins, plenty of oak and a finish of black pepper, fudge and vanilla. Complex and exciting Spanish wine. Needs time; best from 2012 through 2018.
The 2005 Dominio de Atauta was aged in French oak, 20% new. Purple-colored, it offers an alluring array of mineral, black cherry, blackberry, and blueberry pie scents. This leads to a structured, balanced, tight wine that will require 6andndash;8 years of cellaring. All the components are present but patience will be required. In short, this is not a wine for those unable to delay gratification. This is a true vins de garde that will require much patience but in the end, it will be rewarded.
