Monte Armantes Garnacha Tempranillo tinto 2005, D.O. Calatayud.**HERITAGE WINE**

Color: very dark red, with purple nuances.
Nose: warm, rich and intense, with very ripe fruit (berries, brambles) but also fresh fruit, peppery nuances, not unlike a good Côtes du Rhône, a suggestion of vanilla, spices, minerals, very clean and with some depth, concentration and complexity.
Taste: great intensity with power, freshness, richness, full bodied, strong acidity, strong, spicy and ample tannins, good length, loaded with nuances of ripe and fresh fruit, impressions of eau-de-vie, bold and straight character, honest, clean, warm, vibrant, still young and a bit fierce, but with a good intense core and matching juiciness, great tension and excellent balance.
Finish: long, intense, fanning-out, lots of spices, fruit, young tannins and impressions of crushed grape skin, very clean, honest, fresh.

* This vibrant wine has power, intensity, freshness, concentration, depth, loads of lovely, complex and ripe, fresh fruit, spices and minerals. Still a bit young and bold, is also impressively honest and straightforward with an excellent balance. Highest quality medium-range wine: a real bargain.
