"Bodegas Altanza's 2006 Lealtanza Crianza is 100% Tempranillo fermented with native yeasts (as are each of these wines) and aged for 12 months in French and American oak. Dark ruby-colored, it displays an enticing nose of cedar, spice box, tobacco, leather, and blackberry. Smooth-textured and elegant on the palate, it has ample savory fruit, good volume, and enough ripe tannin to evolve for 1-2 years. This lengthy effort will offer prime drinking from 2012 to 2018. "
The Wine Advocate
"Bright red. Fresh red fruits and spices on the nose, with a hint of smoky oak in the background. Sappy, palate-coating cherry and rose pastille flavors show a slight warmth, along with a touch of singed plum. Fine-grained tannins add shape and grip to the sweet, nicely persistent finish. This is ready to drink."
