    Winemaker's Notes:

    The mountainous area from which Este is grown enjoys more than 3,000 hours of sunshine per year, providing optimal ripening conditions during the day while a 20 degree drop at night grants the necessary acidity and balance. Este is represented by a pregnant mare - a symbol of fertility that has blessed the estate's fields for thousands of years. Consulting Winemaker Rafael Palacios' skillful hand working behind the scenes is abundantly clear - and the result is a stunning wine.

    Blend: 47% Monastrell, 23% Tempranillo, 12% Syrah, 6% Garnach, 6% Merlot, and 6% Cabernet Sauvignon

    Critical Acclaim:

    Bodegas Alto Almanzora' 2009 Este is a blend of 50% Monastrell with the balance Tempranillo, Garnacha, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Merlot aged for 6 months in American oak. Mineral, black fruit, espresso, and brier notes inform the nose of this spicy, savory, nicely proportioned effort. It is a very good value for drinking over the next 2-3 years.

    The Wine Advocate

    Inky ruby. Bitter cherry and blackberry on the spice-accented nose. Juicy, fruit-driven and easy to drink, offering fresh dark fruit flavors and a hint of bitter chocolate. Finishes with good energy and length, the spicy note repeating.
