    Style: Big & Bold

    Item no. 97560

    Winemaker's Notes:

    100% Old Vines Garnacha.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Inky purple. Ripe boysenberry and blueberry on the nose, with licorice and graphite adding complexity. Juicy dark berry preserve flavors show palate-saturating depth and impressive clarity, picking up smoky minerals with air. Energetic finishing notes of blackberry skin and candied licorice linger with impressive tenacity. According to the importer, the yield for this wine, made from vines reportedly 80 to 120 years of age, was less than one ton per hectare.

    Toasted vanilla and smoke notes accent raspberry and black cherry fruit in this sleek red, which has enough tannins for grip. The fresh finish echoes with dark chocolate and spice. Drink now through 2011. 1,250 cases imported.

    Wine Spectator

    The 2007 Atteca was sourced from 80- to 120-year-old head pruned Garnacha vines and aged for 10 months in seasoned French oak. Deep purple-colored, it exhibits an impressive nose of crushed stone, black cherry, and plum. This is followed by a full-bodied wine with layers of savory fruit, spice notes, and silky tannin. This balanced effort will evolve for another 1-2 years and drink well through 2017.

    Liked this wine a lot, would easily drink it on its own as pairing food is more difficult. While balanced, it is a big and jammy wine, with lots of dark fruit and juicy berry flavors. Not too many tannins or apparent acid. What you'd call fruit forward. But like I said, really tasty.
