Wine AdvocateThe 2009 Dominio de Atauta comes from 100-year-old pre-phylloxera vines in Valle de Atauta and is aged in 35% new French oak for 16 months. It has a tightly wound, perhaps slightly reticent bouquet that you feel will offer more five to seven years down the line. The palate is silky smooth with seamless tannins and beautifully assimilated oak. It is primal and a little surly on the finish, but should blossom with five years in bottle. This is excellent. Drink 2015-2025.
