"The 2009 Laya is made up of 70% Garnacha Tintorera and 30% Monastrell aged 4 months in French oak. Garnacha Tintorera is known for its deep color and here it coats the glass and imparts aromas of brooding black fruits, licorice, espresso, and pepper. Dense, savory, and rich, this round succulent offering lacks only complexity, but for $9 a full bottle, gimme a break! On top of everything, it is surprisingly light on its feet.

Bodegas Atalaya was founded in 2007 by the Gil family of Jumilla. The prominent grape variety in Almansa is Garnacha Tintorera (Alicante Bouschet) along with Monastrell." (WA)
