Atalaya Almansa 2008 wine review by (PB)
Very young purple hue for a 2008!
Bouquet--Really lovely and big blackberry jam and plum, smokey wood and spices galore.
Palate--Rich, bold blackberry fruit and dark berries with vibrant, young tannins, wells structured, with a smokey oak and berry finish that lasts.
This is a big hefty wine made from Grenache (70%) and Monastrell(30%) that is amazingly young and has a few years to go before it's prime. I paid $14 for this nice wine and call it a nice value so raise a glass and enjoy!
