Alto Las Pizarra Granacha 2005

     Alto Las Pizarra Granacha 2005 begins its journey to your glass in a 2400 acre vineyard in the Ibérian mountains where the bold red Granacha grapes are grown, harvested and  sorted so only the best berries are used in the production of this wine.  It is aged in 100% new French oak and that is where it is left  to complete its malolactic fermentation until it is bottled directly from the barrel.  This full-bodied red boasts aromas of black fruit and roasted coffee while delivering a mouthful of sweet cherry and black fruit flavors that are elegantly well-rounded.  Wine Advocate gave it a 93 194746_webpoint rating and the P.L.C.B. gave it a price of $18.99 after quoting it at $53.00 ( a bit high) making it a must buy at that price.  It is ready to drink now but could be cellared for 10 more years but why would you want to do that?  I say drink it NOW!!!
