Bodegas Atalaya 2012 Laya (Almansa DO) Albacete - Spain
Availability: Private wine shops and BCLDB stores
Date Tasted: February 5th, 2014
Tasting Notes: A blend of 70% Garnacha and 30% Monastrell with bold, dark cherry and Christmas cake aromas on the expressive nose. Tangy and mouth watering, the palate packs a punch with dark fruit, cured meat and French oak flavours. Though the entry is juicy and smooth through the mid-palate, the overall balance is a touch bitter on the moderate finish, but there's a lot to love with this budget blend from Spain's Almansa DO. Drink 2014-2016+.
