Wine Description

Potent, deep and lush, with minty aromas and a lot more wild berry and tobacco than anything crisp or piquant. The palate is lush and packed full of ripe berry and black plum, while the finish is spirited, ripe, full and lusty.

    The 2005 Atteca Armas is sourced from a single Garnacha vineyard planted in 1909 at serious elevation. Malolactic fermentation occurs in new oak. The nose delivers spice box, toast, scorched earth, and black cherry. Large-scaled and full-flavored, this powerful effort conceals enough structure to support 3ndash;5 years of cellaring and should provide pleasure through 2025.
