"The 2005 Alto Moncayo is a selection of older Garnacha vineyards. Purple colored, it is more expressive aromatically with enticing aromas of pain grille, spice box, floral notes, black cherry and black raspberry. Richer, more layered, and intense, this superb effort has a 60+ second finish. Give it 2-3 years to unfurl and drink it through 2020."
"Opaque ruby. Ripe raspberry and cherry aromas are complicated by fresh rose, vanilla and mocha. Deeply concentrated and slow to open, offering deep, liqueur-like red and dark fruit character. Supple tannins add structure to this exotic, youthful fruit bomb, which finishes bright and clingy. Needs a couple years of bottle aging."

A rich, full-bodied wine that is surprisingly light on the tongue. I'd never tried a younger Grenache (Garnacha in Spanish) like this and was wowed by the power and nuance. Highly recommend this for drinking with food or even without.
