    Winemaker's Notes:

    Deep red cherry in color. There is an elegant, fresh and complex nose that highlights ripe fruit and floral notes. Nice and fresh on the palate, well-balanced with sweet but still young tannins, a delicious mouthful sensation that lingers on the very long and smooth finish.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The excellent 2010 La Atalaya is a blend of 85% Garnacha and 15% Monastrell, 40- and 30-year-old vines respectively, grown on chalky and sandy-loam soils and matured in French oak for 12 months, the varieties kept separate until the final blend. It is a little taciturn on the nose at first, opening gradually to offer blackberry, cigar box and a touch of wild mint. The palate is medium-bodied with plenty of crisp blackberry and bilberry fruit, complemented by fresh plums and a splash of balsamic. This is very harmonious, the Monastrell lending the Garnacha structure and tautness on the finish. This is well-crafted and should age well.
