Alto Moncayo's mega Garnacha is this smoky, roasted smelling monster. Aromas of plum and currant are straight from the smoker, while this feels full and massive but tempered by acidity. Resiny oak flavors of clove and campfire are stronger than the wine's plum and berry notes, while this tastes savory and extremely woody on the finish. Drink through 2022.
