Attiya Garnacha tinto 2003, D.O. Calatayud.

Colour: very dark red, with purple nuances.
Nose: warm, very rich and ripe fruity, berries, brambles, some spicy notes with ground pepper, some raisins, a touch of caramel, nice and meaty fruit aroma's, clean and resembling a good Côtes du Rhône.
Taste: full-bodied, smooth, but enough tannins to give this wine backbone, ample alcohol and a lot of juicy, ripe, black fruit. Brambles, berries and also a touch of ground pepper are there, nice, but mild acidity to make this smooth wine well balanced.
Finish: medium long (quite long for its class) very clean and ripe fruity, smooth, but with tannins and some spicy impressions giving this wine grip and definition.

* Very well made and extremely affordable red wine, full bodied, rich and round, brimming with warm and ripe black fruit with a spicy touch of ground pepper, not unlike a good Côtes du Rhône. A real bargain !

- Drink this wine young in it's fruity years, will keep several years, but will not gain extra quality, but change in a more spicy and earthy wine. Keep until ca. 2007
