“Deep violet. Spice-accented blackberry, cherry-vanilla and incense aromas are complicated by hints of candied flowers and cracked pepper. Appealingly sweet and expansive on the palate, offering concentrated red and dark berry, mocha and cola flavors and a strong, spicy overtone. Shows impressive depth as well as energy, finishing with sneaky tannins and an echo of candied flowers and cherry preserves.” – Vinous, February 2021

Tasting Note: Bodegas Ateca has its headquarters in the locality of Ateca (Zaragoza), fourteen kilometers from Calatayud. The vineyard, planted on slate soil on sites at higher elevations of the area, is made up mainly of small parcels of old vines of Garnacha, or Grenache, from the mountain hillside of Ateca and the surrounding villages. The wine is powerful, with a ripe berry core and generous oak – it will benefit from cellaring, but is enjoyable now with a long decant.
