ALTO MONCAYO

Campo de Borja, Spain

[93 pts, Antonio Galloni]

Varietal(s):
100% Grenache

Tasting Notes:

Alto Moncayo is one of those delicious Spanish wines that over-delivers every time you drink it. The wine's complex bouquet offers scents of blueberry, boysenberry, cola, and dark chocolate. Broad, sweet dark berry flavors display liqueur-like depth and power and are nicely framed by velvety tannins. A tangy mineral note gains strength with air and adds vivacity to the long, sweet, spicy finish. Enjoy now and over the next 5 years with your favorite grilled fare.

— SHIPPING NOW —

($37.95 per bottle / $455.40 per case) Rain or shine I will be grilling this weekend for Mother's Day and I have just the wine to pour - the 2014 Alto Moncayo.
    This Old Vine Grenache is perfect for grilled cuisine. It is one of those Spanish wines that over-delivers every time you drink it.
    What makes Grenache (in particular this Grenache) perfect for barbecuing is how approachable the varietal can be without losing its nuance - almost Zinfandelesq in quality. Its rich character, complex bouquet, and tangy mineral notes stand up to and complement the smoky flavors of the grill.
    The wine is always a crowd pleaser and is a member of the 93 point club year in and year out.

A tangy mineral note gains strength with air and adds vivacity to the long, sweet, spicy finish.
    I don't know the exact food I'm going to be grilling yet, but I'm certain the spread will include burgers and ribs. And by the way, Moncayo's younger vine Veraton and superstar Aquilon are also crowd pleasers. Enjoy now and over the next five years. Order Here ».
