Cellar/Tasting Notes
The philosophy of Bodegas Teso La Monja is to respect nature and they work according to the cycles and biorhythms of the plant. The deep roots of the old vine Tinta de Toro (tempranillo) grape translate the pure minerality of the soil into powerful yet elegant red wines.

The Almirez, 100% tempranillo, is a fabulous representation of the terroir as it exhibits balance, power and elegance.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (RP): 94
"Another great value is the 2011 Almirez, which comes from old, ungrafted, head-pruned Tinta de Toro vines. The vineyards are planted at 2,300 foot elevation, and the yields in 2011 were 18 hectoliters per hectare. The wine spent 12 months in 30% new French oak. A fabulous effort, it could easily pass for a big, rich Ch√Ęteauneuf du Pape, even though there is not a touch of Grenache to be found in it. Its dense purple color is accompanied by notes of charcoal, barbecued meat, blackberries, cassis, licorice, camphor and spring flowers. Boasting massive concentration, a full-bodied mouthfeel and lavish extract, all concealing of its French oak aging, this rich, full 2011 possesses velvety tannins as well as a finish that lasts nearly 40 seconds. At this quality level, one would expect the price to be three digits or more. Enjoy it over the next 10 years."
