Opaque red-black. Scarlet rim. The wine opens to an amalgam of minerals and unctuous super-ripe berries. On the palate the wine is deep, rich and ripe. Black fruits (cherries, plums) give way to hints of liquorice, molasses, and a hint of cinnamon. Solid tannins and focused acidity with a long finish.

Alto Moncayo Description

Bodegas Alto Moncayo is a winery located in the Campo de Borja D.O. It was founded in 2002 with the aim of turning it into a world reference for Garnacha wines of the highest quality, crafted from some of the oldest native vine clones in the area.The garnacha grape is one of the varieties that best expresses its terroir. Thus, the Garnacha of Alto Moncayo is different from the rest of the Campo de Borja D.O area. This is due to the very strict selection made from the vineyards, the type of soil in which it is grown, the microclimate, and the age of the vines. Located in Borja- the heart of the Campo de Borja DO . Vines are planted at the foothills of El Moncayo which is the highest point in the Iberian Mountain Range (2,315 m) and the winery's namesake.

The region experiences a continental climate with hot summers and cold winters. Vineyards are planted on very unique soils of red clay (indicative of being rich in iron) mixed with red slate, and because of the hillside location are shallow and nutrient-deficient. The Garnacha grapes of Alto Moncayo undergo very strict vineyard selection, from vines planted as far back as the early 1900's through the 1970's.

Only the most perfectly mature clusters are selected and carried in small crates to prevent crushing, where they are further sorted and selected at triage tables. Wines undergo malolactic fermentation in both French & American oak, and aged in new barrels between anywhere from 16-24 months. These practices, in combination with the unique microclimate of the area ensure superior quality Garnacha that is distinct from any other in the Campo de Borja D.O.

Wine Spectator: 92 Points

Plush in texture and mouthwatering, this expressive red offers a pure beam of cassis and black plum fruit as well as a pretty display of licorice, medicinal herbs, mocha and spice. Full-bodied and well-knit, with sleek tannins and the tang of orange peel acidity defining the racy finish. Drink now through 2030.

COMMENTARY: The 2018 Alto Moncayo Campo de Borja Moncayo is distinctive and generous on the palate. TASTING NOTES: This wine excels with aromas and flavors of red fruit and oaky notes. Enjoy it with grilled lamb chops. (Tasted: March 22, 2022, San Francisco, CA)
