External Reviews for Moncayo Alto Campo de Borja
The purple-colored 2007 Alto Moncayo was aged in new French and American oak for 17 months before bottling without filtration. It offers up a sexy concoction of toasty new oak, lavender, spice box, cassis, and black raspberry. Round, rich, and voluptuous on the palate, it delivers plenty of up-front pleasure but hides enough ripe tannin to evolve for a few years. It can be enjoyed now and over the next decade. The Alto Moncayo wines, from the up-and-coming DO of Campo de Borja, are produced from old-vine Garnacha with winemaking overseen by veteran vigneron Chris Ringland.
(100% garnacha) Deep, bright ruby. Complex bouquet offers scents of blueberry, boysenberry, cola, dark chocolate and mace. Broad, sweet dark berry flavors display liqueur-like depth and power and are nicely framed by velvety tannins. A tangy mineral note gains strength with air and adds vivacity to the long, sweet, spicy finish. Id drink this alluring wine on the young side for its exuberant fruit character. ** SOLD OUT **
The same can be said for the 2007 Alto Moncayo, also 100% Garnacha. It offers up a similar aromatic and flavor profile, just at a slightly higher octane level. This opulent effort is all about pleasure; give it 3-4 years of additional cellaring if yo... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate. A Grenache wine from Aragon in Spain. 2007 Alto Moncayo, Bodegas Alto Moncayo 750ml
Dark purple. The nose offers surreal, room-filling perfume of ripe raspberry, blackberry, incense, vanilla and dried flowers. Shockingly understated on the palate, with vibrant red berry, smoked meat and baking spice flavors, silky tannins and crisp mineral bite. There's no excess fat or sweetness here. Finishes with palate-staining intensity and superb focus.
Leuchtendes, dunkles Rot. Komplexes Bouquet, nebst Kirschfrucht auch Noten von dunklen Beeren, dezent rustikales Unterholz. Ueppige und recht „fette“ Struktur, viel süsse Extrakt. Stützendes Gerbstoffgerüst mit einem dezent bitteren Note, aber gut passend. Ein wuchtiger, barock anmutender, recht ungewöhnlicher Spanier
[94 pts Robert Parker] This wine is spectacular and represents the perfect foil for grilled steak. Rich full bodied and muscular Alto Moncayo has riveting intensity and palate staining extract; this Spanish red is inky/purple full-bodied and rich. This pedal-to-the-metal offering should age handsomely for a decade.
