This red table wine from Bodegas Alto Almanzora is produced in the Almanzora Valley of southern Spain. Este is a combination of Monastrell, Tempranillo, Garnacha, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, and Merlot. We had enjoyed a few bottles of the 2006 vintage and were glad to find the 2007 available in the Seattle area. This wine has a dark ruby color with a nose full of fresh raspberries, cherries, currants and wet rock. This medium bodied wine is full of rich fruit flavors along with exotic spice and dusty tannins. The bold dark fruit flavors are well balanced by crisp acidity and a mineral coating that make this wine a real winner. We purchased the modern Spanish gem at Esquin Wine Shop, in Seattle, for about $10.
