Natalie's Score: 89/100

Alceno Premium 2015 is a full-bodied 85% Syrah and 15% Monastrell red wine blend from the Jumilla wine region. Look for ripe blackberry, raspberry leaf flavours on the palate. For Alceño Premium 50 Barricas, the winemaker chooses the Syrah wine juice from among 50 barrels to make the final blend which is then matured in French and American barriques for 6 months. Great with grilled veggie burgers topped with aged cheddar.

50 Barricas Syrah food pairings: spice-braised lamb, cheddar, grilled pork chops, Muscovy duck.

Reviews and Ratings

Wineboy rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Lots of power in this wine offering opulent berry fruit and more than ample oak. Only a Spanish wine lover could say this was balanced with the oak more dominant than the fruit, but there are more and more Spanish wine lovers out there so enjoy.
Alceno Premium 2015 is a full-bodied 85% Syrah and 15% Monastrell red wine blend from the Jumilla wine region. Look for ripe blackberry, raspberry leaf flavours on the palate. Tannins are smooth and this is an excellent value under $20 red wine. Enjoy now and pair with veggie burgers. This traditional family estate was founded in the Jumilla region in 1870 but only began bottling in 2000. In its fourth generation of winemaking, wines are mainly fermented in cement casks and aged in American and French wood. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
