Bodegas Alto Moncayo is a joint venture of Jorge Ordonez, Bodegas Borsao and others, in conjunction with Chris Ringland. Dark Ruby with dark berry fruit aromas, from 40+ year old vines and aged for 16 months in oak. On the palate flavors of ripe plum and black fruits with cacao, spice and mineral notes. Soft tannins, vivid acidity ending with gentle oak spice on the finish. Wines from Spain are superb and at great values, especially Bodegas Alto Moncayo wines. — a year ago
A quick jab followed by a left hook. This wine is a knock out! Blackberry, forward fruit followed with anise notes and a subtle flinty finish. — 3 years ago
