2009 McPrice Myers "Altas Viñas" Santa Barbara County Rhône Blend

SKU #1217677 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2009 Atlas Vinas is an exciting wine laced with dark fruit, scorched earth, licorice, leather and tobacco. The aromas and flavors come through with tons of intensity and pedigree in this full-bodied, brooding wine. There is considerable depth and richness in the glass, but readers will have to be a bit patient here. (AG) Inner quote mark (8/2011)

90 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Lots of juicy fruit with meat and berry character. A little hot and alcoholic. But outstanding wine. Full and juicy. Inner quote mark (10/2011)

Connoisseurs Guide

Outer quote mark *One Star* Although potent and undeniably very rich, this big-bodied wine is so driven by ripeness that it barely hangs on to fruit. It is rife with chocolate and smacks of cream-sweetened coffee and only distantly hints of black cherries and berries. It has enough extract and mass to survive an onrush of finishing heat, but it will not win applause from those looking for nuance and grace. That said, it is neither pruny nor porty, and it has the richness of a very good wine. Inner quote mark (7/2013)

Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Aromas of plum compote lead to cherry kirsch-like flavors in this intense and firmly tannic red. Shows a raw edge, crushed rock notes and some heat on the finish. Needs time. (Web-2012) Inner quote mark
