2005 Celler la Muntanya "Almoroig" Alicante (Previously $29.99)

SKU #1048802

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright ruby-red. Black raspberry and candied cherry on the nose, with subtle smoked meat, baking spice and floral qualities. Sharply focused red and dark berry flavors gain weight and sweetness with air and pick up vanilla and cola notes. Silky tannins carry through a long, sweet finish, which leaves a strong berry note behind." (Sept/Oct '08) 90 points from Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2005 Almoroig was sourced from 60- to 80-year-old estate vineyards and aged for 12 months in new French and Hungarian oak. Dark ruby-colored, the wine is very perfumed with lots of spice, violets, mineral, blueberry, and black cherry. This leads to a full-bodied, forward, seamless, ripe wine with excellent balance and depth. It can be enjoyed now and over the next 6 years." (02/08) A unqiue blend of Monastrell, Giró (Garnatxa del país) and Garnatxa Tintorera.

Spain

- With more land under vine than any other country in the world, Spain is the great sleeping wine giant. In recent years, a great deal of money and passion has been poured in the burgeoning Spanish wine industry, helping to improve quality among its vast array of wines from sparkling Cava to Sherry to Rioja Gran Reserva. The most important red-wine-producing regions are Rioja, Ribera del Duero and Navarra in the north and Priorat and Penedes in the northeast.
