Bright purple. Black raspberry and cassis aromas, with spicy mineral and floral elements gaining power with air. Powerful dark fruit flavors are sweetened by vanilla and cola nuances and lifted by juicy acidity. Impressively velvety wine, with very good finishing breadth and lingering spiciness. Plenty of bang for the buck here.

The 2011 Altos de la Hoya produced from un-grafted 40-year-old Monastrell with a balance of 5% Garnacha (blending a little Garnacha with the Monastrell starts sounding like a popular idea), fermented in stainless steel with natural yeasts. Then half of the wine is aged for six months in 6,000-liter French oak vats and the other half in 225-liter barriques. Clean, bright cherry robe, a polished nose of red and black fruits, well-integrated oak, with a straight palate, good acidity and the red and black fruit coming back in a very pleasant finish. 250,000 bottles produced. This is even better value. Drink 2014–2016.
