Andrew Bernardo rated this wine as 94/100 with the following review:

This is an absolutely stunning offering, loaded with black briars, macerated plums, oak, warm spice, meat blood, smoke, crushed rocks, fresh garrigue and purple flowers. The finish is endless. Pair with roasted red meats. Drink now through 2026.
Mark rated this wine as 90/100
Wineboy rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Grenache is usually medium power, this one goes well beyond that. BIG, HEAVY, lots of sweet oak more than matching the power of the fruit flavours. Possesses all the smoothness of Grenache and a touch more alcohol typical of the grape variety. Perfect for an American wine drinker who is looking for a substitute these days.

Natalie's Review

Alto Moncayo Veraton Garnacha 2015, Campo De Borja D.O., Spain: From the Campo De Borja wine region, Alto Moncayo Veraton 2015 is made from 100% Grenache wine grapes. Savoury with zesty acidity, this is a delicious juicy red with ripe cherry, plum, anise and chocolate flavours on the palate. Pair with roast beef.

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.
