2006 Atauta Ribera Del Duero
"What a beauty! Masculine aromas of black fruits, cola and oak sit there begging to be sipped, while the lush, deep palate is home to dense blackberry, cassis and chocolate flavors. Lively but dense, with tannins, plenty of oak and a finish of black pepper, fudge and vanilla. Complex and exciting Spanish wine. Needs time; best from 2012 through 2018." 95 Points - Wine Enthusiast
#73 on Wine Spectator's Top 100 Wines of 2010
"Dense yet lively, this chewy Spanish red delivers cherry, berry, licorice, mineral and smoke notes. The tannins are firm, yet the wine remains fresh and clean. Oaky, but well-grounded. Best from 2011 through 2017." 92 points - Wine Spectator
"Inky purple. Very rich aromas of dark cherry, plum and mocha. Displays fresher berry qualities on the palate, with slow-mounting minerality adding welcome lift. Deep, chewy and serious, with powerful tannins contributing structure. As this sat in the glass, it became more lively, picking up a black raspberry note and losing some of its brooding character. Leaves smoky minerals behind on the long, chewy finish. This needs some time to stretch out." 90 Points - Josh Raynolds
"On the far eastern edge of Ribera del Duero, the town of Atauta overlooks a hidden canyon, ValdeGatiles, its floor covered with ancient Tempranillo vines. From this canyon a remarkable new red wine has emerged: Dominio de Atauta. Made from vines that are survivors from the pre-Phylloxera era, Dominio de Atauta offers that rare combination of compelling quality and extraordinary origins. Vines were first planted in Atauta over a thousand years ago. The people who tended those vines also built dozens of limestone winecellars which surreally dot the landscape. In modern times, these cellarsâand the vines that supplied themâwere abandoned."
"A prominent Madrid wine merchant, Miguel Sanchez, grew up near Atauta. When he left, he had little idea that Atauta was anything but a sleepy, aging town. The few remaining local growers, however, noted his success. In 1995, they asked him for help in marketing their wines. Miguel quickly found a market for them but, in the process, he also discovered what a viticultural treasure the zone possessed. Everywhere he looked, he saw small neglected plots of ancient Tempranillo vines, poorly maintained and entirely unpruned. He also realized that virtually every vine was ungrafted âconsequence of Phylloxera sidestepping Atauta in its march across northern Spain a century ago. Today, Atauta is a priceless rarity in the wine world: a sea of ungrafted vines, many exceeding 100 years of age." -Importer

2004 El Vinculo La Mancha Crianza
"The 2004 El Vinculo, from a superior vintage, is purple-colored. It offers a more expressive nose and riper, sweeter fruit on the palate. The wine has excellent balance and length. Drink it over the next 5-7 years." 90 Points - Jay Miller - Wine Advocate
"Deep ruby. Dark berries and kirsch on the nose, with earthier tobacco and mocha adding depth. Ripe cherry and bitter chocolate flavors are lifted by a gentle mineral component, which adds cut to the finish. Plenty ripe but also precise and energetic. More vibrant and pure than the 2003." 90 Points - Josh Raynolds - International Wine Cellar
"The El VÃnculo winery is the result of an old idea Alejandro FernÃ¡ndez had: making a great wine in La Mancha. He finally found what he was looking for after travelling around the region for some time. What he discovered were good very mature Tempranillo vines acclimatised to local conditions. If the vines were well cared for, selected and their production controlled, that great wine from La Mancha that Alejandro had always dreamt about could finally become a reality."
"That is how Alejandroâs latest great project âand last for the time beingâ began. A beautiful typical building from La Mancha located near the windmills of Campo de Criptana and next to the railway station was reconverted into a modern winery designed to make limited quantities of top-quality wine. The name chosen for the winery, âEl VÃnculoâ, is a homage to the old family winery located in the Duero area. The first vintage, that of 1999, appeared in December 2001 after undergoing malolactic fermentation, 16 months of ageing in oak barrels and another 6 months in the bottle."
"The Tempranillo vineyards located in La Mancha follow the same cycle as those in the Duero area, or almost. They are subjected to more sun, greater heat, less humidity and the same cold. They grow in an area with an extreme continental climate of freezing winters that suddenly give way to very hot summers almost without any sort of transition. Temperatures reach up to 45Âº C in the summer and â15Âº C in the winter in an area that receives more the three thousand hours of direct sunlight per year. Although the land is flat, the mountains that surround the whole region make it difficult for wet fronts coming in from the sea to penetrate. Annual rainfall ranges from 300 to 400 mm per year and droughts, sometimes for prolonged periods, affect this area. That is why careful drip irrigation is essential to ensure top-quality grapes are available at harvest time. " -Importer
