Alto Moncayo, Garnacha, Campo de Borja 2004

Very deep purple/red.

Vinturi - attractive, deep nose - coconut, savory meat stew, pepper with black fruit underneath.

Considerable textural sweetness with some mid-palate heat that throws flavors off track through the finish. Totally disjointed in the finish, where fairly strong acidity kicks in. I thought I was going to change my mind about this wine based on the nose ...
Hated my first bottle a few years ago.

$40. Chris Ringland is the consulting winemaker. 16% alcohol listed.
