Bodegas Alto Moncayo Campo de Borja Garnacha 2012
|Region||Campo de Borja|
|Brand||Bodegas Alto Moncayo|
Wine AdvocateThe 2012 Alto Moncayo, pure Garnacha from a warm, extremely dry and early vintage is extremely young and oaky with a nose full of vanilla, cinnamon, clove and smoke along with ripe blackberries, some cereal hints and notes of café au lait intermixed with quite a lot of toasts aromas from the barrel. The bottled wine is 16% alcohol but feels quite balanced, it has some grainy tannins to be resolved, and some oak flavors to be integrated. A ripe, rich Garnacha that should age well in bottle. There were 55,200 bottles produced in 2012.
Wine SpectatorFloral and spice aromas give way to juicy fruit flavors of black cherry, pomegranate and plum in this bold red. Fine-grained tannins and fresh, citrusy acidity lend focus. A modern style, showing focus and restraint. Drink now through 2020. 1,000 cases made.
Wine EnthusiastFull blackberry and black-plum aromas come with controlled but obvious oak. This feels tight and direct on the palate, with ripeness and weight. Blackberry, cassis and chocolaty oak flavors finish woody and peppery, with drying tannins. This is a powerful, oaky Garnacha made for the modern palate.
