Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate
One of Spain's finest estates, the still under-the-radar Bodegas Alto Moncayo is a joint venture of Dan Phillips, Jorge Ordonez, Chris Ringland, Jose Miguel San Martin, Bodegas Borsao and others. The top wine is their old vine 100% Grenache cuvee called Alto Moncayo. Their value pick is the Veraton, and both the 2010 and 2011 are outstanding wines as well as terrific bargains.

This rich red delivers expressive flavors of blackberry, boysenberry and espresso, with a thick texture enlivened by balsamic acidity and supported by well-integrated tannins. Licorice and mineral notes add interest. Drink now through 2020.

Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate
Remarkably, the 2011 Veraton is just as strong with an even higher alcohol content of 15.5%. A fabulous nose of spring flowers, ground pepper, blackberries and black cherry liqueur is followed by a full-bodied, super-intense wine made from incredibly low yields, and aged 17 months in a combination of French and American oak before being bottled unfiltered. This superb wine easily competes with wines priced two to three times higher. It, too, should drink well for a decade.
 

Additional Information

Region :
Spain
Sherry and Rioja have long been the best-known Spanish wines outside Spain, but Cava, Rivera del Duero and other wine regions are gaining notoriety. Tempranillo and Grenache (Garnacha) are the primary red grapes used, while AlbariƱo and Chardonnay lead white wine production. Spanish wines are aged at the winery and, contrary to most winemaking philosophies, are released only when they are ready to drink. Spanish wines are usually aged in Spanish, French or American oak, and tend to be big and ripe thanks to the warm dry climate. View all our items from Spain
