PRODUCT OVERVIEW/REVIEW:
For 100 years, Juan Gil Family Estates has been crafting some of Spain's greatest value-priced wines. Based in Jumilla, Juan Gil has successfully tapped into the viticultural bounty of Spain's "sleeper" regions, crafting wines high in quality and low in price. In 2007 the family headed just due north of Jumilla to the neighboring DO of Almansa, where the limestone soils, long, hot summers, cold winters, and sparse rainfall result in low-yield vines. Low yields = grapes with intensely concentrated flavors - and that is exactly what you get with the 2021 Bodegas Atalaya "Laya"!

The "Laya" was featured in our store a few years ago and quickly earned itself a cult following among staff and customers who enjoy rich, fruit-driven reds. The 2021 has exceeded the high standards set by its predecessors. A blend of 70% Garnacha and 30% Monastrell aged for 4 months in French oak, it has a nose of red and black fruits and floral notes. The palate is full-bodied, silky smooth, and redolent with flavors of cassis and black cherries. These ripe fruits are layered with subtle accents of vanilla, cedar, and backing spices; moderate acidity brings it all into balance and carries the wine to a long finish.

Check out the press!

90 points, Robert Parker:
"The 2021 Laya is fruit-driven and easy to drink, with 14.5% alcohol, ripe fruit, and a soft texture." (4/29/22)
