User Tasting Note
nancyred79Bodegas Altanza’s 2006 Lealtanza Crianza is 100% Tempranillo fermented with native yeasts (as are each of these wines) and aged for 12 months in French and American oak. Dark ruby-colored, it displays an enticing nose of cedar, spice box, tobacco, leather, and blackberry. Smooth-textured and elegant on the palate, it has ample savory fruit, good volume, and enough ripe tannin to evolve for 1-2 years.
