Great Spanish Value

I was very impressed by this wine. If you like Big, Bold, Spanish grenache this wine is an unbelieveable value.  A deep, dark purple wine, with a magenta rim.  Loads of dark black fruits, blackberry, raspberry, casis, and strawberry. A good dose of toasty oak and smooth tanins make this an easy wine to drink.

Much better than other vintages that I've had but still not that great - it's mostly cherry taste with a bit of spice. It won't change your life, but it's a nice value. Drink now and with food.

I thought that based on Parkers 91 points, that this wine would be a steal, but it fell way short of my expectations.  Plum and sweet cherries are the high points, but the oak and alcohol ruin this wine for me.  Still delivers for the price point.

Drank this blind at a tasting. The theme was high scoring wines under $20. We did this to see if any of the scores really meant something. Overall an OK wine, still I liked the 02 or 03, better.

This wine is a spanish fruit bomb wrapped in silky smooth vanilla oak.  It delivers for the money and offers a good look into spanish wines for those who have never tried them.  This wine steps above other Spanish wines and brings a little extra flavor to enjoy right now!

Alcohol and light smoky fruit that can barely make an appearance thanks to the alcohol.  This wine isn't worth the under $10 price tag it demands.  Skip this wine.

Tres Picos steps up its game

An improvement over the 2004, which I found a little harsh and hot. Not this one. Dirty ruby red in color, well balanced and medium bodied. Taste was tart and tangy like a granache should be. Robust and powerful due to the energy of the granache grape. Feel this on the back of tongue and in the throat. Aftertaste reminds me of bittersweet chocolate. Very reactive in the mouth. Finish 10-20 seconds. Bouquet of winery barrel room, which is somewhat yeasty and heady. Legs ran fast, fat, and in several waves. Light and fine residue in glass. This is well made and I definitely like it, but I feel this would be hard to drink a lot of. Think this willl go well with strong flavored foods and sauces.

Nice Qpr ($7). Berries and cherries on the nose. Spicy, but a tad high on the heat factor. Nicely paired w/Meatloaf.  I had older vinteages and they were much better.

Decent granache

Thin ruby Red color, floral bouquet, light to medium bodies, simple in structure. Metallic taste of granache. A little hot out of the bottle but has calmed donw on second day (decanted). Leg and running pretty slow. I smelled some sort of flowers in a glass that sat overnight. Really makes my mouth pucker and shrink. Finish fades in about 10 seconds. A decent Grenache at the price.

2004 - Alto Moncayo, Bodegas Alto Moncayo
This is not your grandmother's grenache!

Alto Moncayo, 2004 Grenacha. 100% Grenache. Hard to believe this Spanish Grencahe monster has a big brother (The $100ish Aquilon) because this is perhaps the biggest Grenache I've tasted. Topping out at a whopping Port-level 16% alcohol, this big brooding grenache would do fine with 4 or even 6 hours in the decanter. Those who wait it out will be rewarded with a concentrated but superbly balanced wine. After opening up a bit the nose gives up some amazing aromas of sun-baked red fruits, crushed raspberries, and a hint of allspice, and even a bit of fennel. In the mouth, the flavors roll to the red fruits and even some blueberry, cherries and a nice background of leather, flint(?) and chocolate. This is a major wine-richly complex, balanced (like a bear on a bicycle), and with a finish that never quits, one that in fact keeps rolling on and on in waves. I'd pair this equally masculine foods, a slow cooked lamb with a hint of spice; a charred and crackling New York steak, or a vegatarian BBQ skewers of portabello mushrooms and eggplant marinated in a not-too-spicy curry.  Definitely 4.5 stars.

Amazing wine. Wonderful minerality and hint of milkweed. nice concentration, balance of fruit, acidity and grip. medium to full bodied, definitely able to evolve for at least another 3-5 years.

This isn't a bad wine at all, but it isn't going to blow you away either - at least not if you've had three or more spanish wines in the $15 and under range.  Vanilla, red fruit, slight tobacco and light alcohol come through just like most other spanish red wines in that price range.  I honestly don't remember the price point on this wine but anything over $12-15 and I would skip it - search out another jewel. 

87-88 Points.

This wine was peppery and cherry. It was served with seared blackened ahi tuna. this is a wine that needs some time. The wine does well if decanted for 30-45 minutes minimum. This is as good as some of my favorite Italian food wines. This wine is a wine that i will always to keep in the cellar. I reccomend this wine to friends. I have shared this wine with servers in restaurants and they enjoy this wine very much.

Tried this on a whim at the recommendation of the proprietor of Davidson's Liquors in Denver. He raved about it. Quite good. Not your typical grenache. It was strong, spicy, fruit-forward, and very drinkable. The high alcohol content gives it a nose that makes you think it is a spirit, rather than a wine. It reminded me of a big zin, actually. If you can find it, buy it. It should be between $12-$15 a bottle.
