    Region: Spain

    Varietal: Other Red Blends

    Item no. 98198

    Winemaker's Notes:

    Varieties: 45% Monastrell, 25% Tempranillo, 12% Syrah, 7% Garnacha, 6% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon.

    The name Este means "east" in Spanish, which is the orientation of the property's main entrance.

    Critical Acclaim:

    There are 10,000 cases of Alto Almanzora’s 2007 Este, a blend of 45% Monastrell, 25% Tempranillo, and the balance Syrah, Garnacha, Merlot, and Cabernet Sauvignon. It is sourced from the little-known DO of Almeria located in eastern Andalucia in the south-east of Spain. The wine was aged for six months in French and American oak. Deep purple in color (remarkably dense for its humble price), it offers up a kinky, full-blown nose of smoke, spice box, and wild blueberry. Ripe, succulent, and layered, this bargain-priced, hedonistic effort totally over-delivers. Buy it by the palette load and drink it over the next three years.
