Critical Acclaim

RP 90
The Wine Advocate

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.

Alto Almanzora, , Spain
From the ancient mountains of Andalucía - land that has been cultivated throughout history by Phoenicians, Greeks, Romans and Muslims - lies this categorically modern winery with state of the art facilities and stunning architecture. 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 - a stunning wine for an even more stunning price.
