2007 Atalaya Almansa

Atalaya_2007I revisited this the other night, after a big score and a “kinky” reference in the description, it sold out, but Jorge Ordonez brought more over from Spain. Ruby in color. On the nose, youthful, medium+ intensity, red plum, raspberry, red cherry, strawberry, sweat, leather, spice, white pepper, chalky dusty soil, with some oak. On the palate, dry, medium tannin, medium body, very pretty spices and fruit, with a sweaty component that is distinctly sexy in it’s exoticness, with nice balance, and a solid finish. This wine over delivers for the price point.
