Critical Acclaim

RP 87
The Wine Advocate

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.

ST 87
International Wine Cellar

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.
