The Wine Advocate 90 pts - Jay Miller
The 2009 Ateca was sourced from mountainside vineyards and aged for 10 months in French oak. It displays aromas of cedar, an earthy minerality, black cherry, and lavender leading to a savory, deep, well-balanced red with succulent fruit and a lengthy, seamless finish. Drink this outstanding value over the next 4-5 years.

Wine Spectator 86 pts - Thomas Matthews
Flavors of kirsch, chocolate and mint flavors in this fruity, rather jammy red, which features supple tannins and bright, tropical acidity that keeps the wine juicy and fresh. Drink now through 2014. 3,000 cases imported.

Wine Enthusiast 89 pts - Michael Schachner
Rich, warm, earthy and fully oaked, with mocha, molasses, blackberry and bacon aromas. The palate is huge but balanced, with clear, ripe black fruit, caramel and vanilla flavors. Modern and chunky but with flow and character; a winner for the price, with a toasty, mocha-driven finish.

Description:
It is deep cherry. It has intense aromas of red ripe fruit (ripe raspberry) which combine perfectly with the spicy notes of cacao, vanilla and licorice corresponding to a noble aging. It is very fresh and fruity in the mouth. It has a notable ending where fruity and spicy aromas come back via retro-nasal. It is a magnificent expression of an elegant Garnacha from Aragon.
