Bodegas Atalaya La Atalaya del Camino 2015
Made by the Juan Gil family who also make the famous Clio red in Jumilla, Bodegas Atalaya 'La Atalaya' is an old vine red made from 65 year vines with Garnacha, Monastrell and Alicante Bouschet. The yields are incredibly low, with only 2 ½ tons per acre. Big, dense, chewy and smooth, this delicious bargain red has black fruit, olive and mocha notes in the nose and mouth. Founded in 1916, Juan Gil is celebrating their 100th anniversary, and continues to show the world how great, authentic wines are made with love, passion and pride!!!
Serve with pasta, (noodles, spaghetti, macaroni), vegetables, mushrooms, stewed meat, sausage, pork, roasted meat, red and/or white meat with sauces, grilled meat, soft or medium cheeses.
Bottle ShopSultry nose of ripe black and red fruits, dark chocolate and spice box lead to a full and concentrated palate with velvety, rich tannins. This is an unbelievable value for folks looking for big, rich, multi-layered reds. Drink now or hold.
Wine SpectatorBlackberry and currant flavors mingle with licorice and tarry notes in this round red. The light tannins are a bit grippy, giving way to a smoky, slightly bitter finish. Garnacha Tintorera and Monastrell.
