Parada De Atauta 2009: 90 Points | International Wine Cellar , September/October 2011 Bright purple. Fragrant nose displays blackberry, violet, black pepper and spicy oak. Suave, spicy and open-knit, with a restrained sweetness and good spicy lift to the flavors of blackberry and candied flowers. Finishes with silky tannins and a lingering floral quality.

Technical notes
The great altitude of the valley of Atauta, close to a thousand metres above sea level, is stamped on the personality of its vineyard. Here, the wind blows constantly from west to east and cleans the bunches. It does not rain too much except for the occasional summer storm, and it is very cold in the winter. The weeks before the harvest, which is crucial to its state of maturity, typically have wide ranging variances between day and night, sometimes as much as 25 degrees centigrade. This way the wines are guaranteed an aromatic intensity. Nevertheless, the determining factor of Atauta is the diversity of its terrains, as many as thirty of them. Although the bed is made-up of rock and the topsoil of sand there is a variance in its composition (limestone or clay), its exposure, and its orientation and, in its day, this protected it from being affected by the philloxera and has allowed the majority of its vines to remain in ungrafted plantations.
