89 points ""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. " 90 Points The Wine Advocate "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." 89 Points Wine Enthusiast " Best 2011-2016
