2009: 90 Points - Jay Miller, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Altos de la Hoya Ungrafted Old-Vines Monastrell contains 8% Garnacha in its blend. It delivers high-toned black and blue fruit flavors and aromas framed by a ripe wine with lively acidity, a smooth texture, and a pure, silky finish. "

2009: 90 Points - Josh Raynolds, Steve Tanzer's International Wine Cellars: " Bright violet. Spicy, floral-accented aromas of black raspberry, sassafras, dried flowers and allspice, enhanced by a subtle mineral overtone. Lively and precise, with sweet red and dark berry flavors and a nervy mineral spine. Shows very good energy on the finish, leaving tangy red fruit and spice notes. This is quite unlike most wines from Jumilla, which can show more richness than balance. Some of these vines date back to 1872."

Wine maker notes
In our Hoya De Santa Ana Vineyard, at an altitude of 825 meters, a unique terroir and old ungrafted vines combine to yield distinctive, genuinely expressive Jumilla wines. Monastrell is our region's classic variety and with Altos de La Hoya we aim to capture its essence. We select from our top lots, utilizing only wild yeast for fermentation, and the age the wine for a minimum of 6 months in French barrels.
