March 13, 2016 - Aroma is perfumes, floral almost. On the palette, beautifully smooth, cassis, sandalwood, with tea spices on the finish. Nice structure, little to no tannins.

January 21, 2016 - Decanted approx. 30 min. ... A year-in, year-out solid performer for us. Rich and lush, with a plush, berries and cream open, that's backed by smoke and leather, with a hint of game to finish. Enough backbone to keep this from being over-the-top, it's a big, bold wine not for the AFWE crowd. A great value, this is just a terrific wine and a vintage that's in a really good place right now.2 people found this helpful Comment

January 11, 2016 - Have had numerous bottles of this over multiple vintages. Always consistent, although I slightly prefer the 11's to the 10's. The 12's are showing promise as well (and of course the 09's are out of this world). If you like em BIG, fruity and smooth, without crossing the line into spoof territory, these are for you. Always a nice touch of acidity too, to keep it lively.
This bottle seemed a bit closed, so gave it a good aerating and some time, and it came to life. As usual, lots of cherry, chocolate and cedar, but the oak wasn't as aggressive this time.1 person found this helpful Comment

January 11, 2016 - What can I say about Alto Moncayo? It is a wonderful full bodied wine with a deep ruby color and an outstanding nose. It is velvety on the palate with a long finish. The tannins are there and are so pleasantly balanced with enough acidity to go perfect with a medium rare filet.
By the way, we also had a 2007, that Parker gave 100 points and he was right on the money!

January 1, 2016 - Decanted one hour and drank with bacon-wrapped grilled pheasant. Delicious wine, jammy, smokey and brighter than expected. Soft tannins and significant depth from the alcohol but not the heat you expect at 16%. Very nice wine.
