Rich and powerful with a dark berry fruit. Some aromas of (extra) dark chocolate and spice. I would recommend this with heavier & spicy meats. I accidentally left the wine uncorked overnight and still found the wine to be full bodied and interesting. I would say this wine is an excellent value. I am only giving it 4 stars because I found the finish to be slightly rough, even after decanting.

Not as soft or smooth as I would have expected, and a bit too herbal/tannic for my taste.

This wine was medium bodied to me, flexible in its appeal (black cherry, slight smokiness), and for the price an excellent value. I would buy more for a dinner party or large group....but i would not necessarily purchase it as an everyday drinking wine as it lacked depth to me.

Atalaya Laya 2012
(this vintage is sold out)
Price: $11.99
Style: Big & Bold
This wine was difficult for me to rate, as the intensity of flavor was so unexpected. If I had tasted this blindly, I would have thought it was an expensive Sonoma Zinfandel... Dark chocolate, espresso and overripe blue/black fruit are intense with an almost overly smoky/oaky nose. I do enjoy this wine but it truly does not taste like it is in the Grenache/Garnacha family. I had it with some cinnamon sugar toast and a piece of chocolate. It would definitely overpower a white meat of any sort. I would like to try it with a mole or curry though! The only component that does not remind me of a Zinfandel is the fact I noticed the legs were not as defined. Definitely worth trying at this price!

This Rhone blend seems young, slightly too tart, and a bit bland. I think there are much nicer examples of this blend available. There was a reasonable smoothness to the finish, but not much berry depth or complexity.

Wonderful to have with middle eastern/Mediterranean foods. Can stand up to heat as it has a bit of its own, and the smoothness combined with aromatic black tea and anise adds to that flavor profile (seasoned, spicy) in particular. Great to share with any elegant meal, really, and not so rich that it overwhelms the palate. Lovely! I will be buying more!

I had the opportunity of having a glass of this wine after a table I was waiting on left 1/4 of the bottle on the table "you should try some dear. on us" ...An elegant older couple ordered it, and I was astonished at the time thinking, why would they spend that much on a bottle of wine when they were sharing a New York strip steak? I had never gotten to taste it, as the place I was working back then only opened the cheaper bottles for the employee tastings. Wow. That was all I could say, or think, after trying the wine. Ok. That couple had their priorities set just right! This wine seemed so rich and delicious that I thought for the first time that there really was something to be said about an expensive bottle of wine. I started writing a wine journal after that experience! The silky, luscious mouthfeel was what I noticed most. Before that, wine was "good" or "not good" to me. I thought, cinnamon, cardamom, boysenberry, cigar smoke....This wine was like an everlasting gobstobber. But... Elegant.
