The 2018 Atalaya Alaya Tierra is a hedonist's delight. Incredibly extracted, this amazing wine pours a deep-purple hue and immediately and assertively attacks your nose with gripping aromas of super-ripe purple and black fruits, blackberry pie, baking spice, cedar, and tobacco. It only gets better from here because the palate is super rich, almost chewy in character, showing focus on the ridiculously dense, extracted blue and black fruits, along with background notes of cedary oak, sweet spice, and vanilla. Silky in texture with no hard edges.
