About

90

"The 2009 La Atalaya is 85% Garnacha Tintorera and 15% Monastrell that spent 12 months in French oak. It, too, sports a glass coated with glycerin as well as a super-fragrant nose of exotic spices, lavender, incense, and black raspberry. Succulent, layered, and totally pleasure-bent, this plush offering has a smooth-as-silk finish totally unexpected from a wine of this humble price. It is an amazing value in unrestrained hedonism."

90 Wine Spectator

"A very aromatic red, offering floral and spice overtones to the flavors of cassis, ripe cherry, damson plum and smoky mineral. Firm tannins structure this muscular red, but it's balanced, and should show more with time. Garnacha Tintorera and Monastrell. Best from 2014 through 2019."
