Dark ruby/purple in color, it has an expressive nose of spice box, coffee, black cherry and blackberry. Made in a racy style, with good acidity, this wine admirably combines ripe, sweet fruit with elegance.

Located on the far eastern edge of the Ribera Del Duero, the Dominio de Atauta is named after the town with the same name. Here, in a canyon, pre-Phylloxera Tempranillo vines are still found and French winemaker Bertrand Sourdais creates a complex and powerful red. Aromas of wild herbs, cured meat, black fruit, and tobacco will waft from the glass.

This is the newest project from the makers of Atauta. Made from 100% Tinto Fino (tempranillo), this is a wine with incredible balance and restraint. Atalayas is made from grapes around Atauta, showing blackberry and dusty tannins, yet more approachable in its youth.

Considered the most authentic wine of the magical place of Atauta in the eastern part of the Ribera Del Duero, this red wine has intense concentration. Aged in French barrels for 16 months, this wine is reminiscent of black plums, dark chocolate, and vanilla spice. A wine that can age.

This single vineyard from Dominio de Atuata was planted in 1941 in the valley of Atauta in the Ribera Del Duero. Extremely limited in production, this lip-smacking red boasts notes of a dark earthiness and red stone fruits. An age-worthy wine.

Winemaker's Notes:

96 points Jay Miller (Wine Advocate): The 2004 Llanos del Almendro is from what the estate believes is their finest parcel. From 60+-year-old (mostly grafted) vines, the Tempranillo fruit is aged for 21 months in French barriques of which 66% are new. Opaque purple in color, with a more open and expressive nose of minerals, smoked meat, and blue and black fruits, this full-bodied wine is mouth-filling and rich. In a blind tasting it could easily pass for a great Pauillac in its combination of power and elegance. Kudos to Dominio Atauta!
