93 Wine Advocate (12/28/2018) "The eponymous 2015 Alto Moncayo is a ripe, powerful and concentrated old-vine Garnacha that has 16% alcohol and matured for 20 months in brand new oak barrels, 65% French and the rest American. With that description, you can immediately guess the profile of the wine: a juicy, chewy, ripe and concentrated red with plenty of oak aromas and flavors. I found it fiercely oaky and balsamic, still very young and a little raw, in need of a good couple of years in bottle to calm down. It has a creamy character, with a lactic hint, a full-bodied palate and plenty of tannins. The oak is in the foreground and the tannins coat the inside of your mouth. It needs time. It's not my favorite style of wine, but within that style it's quite good."
95 Jeb Dunnuck (3/1/2018) "The 2015 Alto Moncayo is knockout stuff and a solid step up over the 2012. Aged 22 months in 20% American oak Hogsheads and 80% in new French oak, its deep ruby/purple color is followed by terrific notes of black raspberries, framboise, toasted spices, and flowers. It has full body, sweet tannin, and a sexy, seamless, elegant style that just begs to be drunk. Maturity 2018 - 2026."

We are in Westridge Court, at the intersection of Rt. 59 and Aurora Avenue. Our center is on the east side of Rt. 59 on the part of the center that faces Aurora Avenue.

Our store is on Old Skokie Road which is the frontage road on the west side of Rt. 41. We are 400 yards south of Deerfield Rd/Central Avenue. If you know where Williams Ski & Patio or Rick's Auto Body are located, we're on the same street; just about a few hundred yards to the south. If you are not familiar with the area, best to use GPS or some online directions because our store is a bit tricky to find!

We're on Elston Avenue, just off of the Kennedy Expressway (I-90/94). Take the North Avenue exit and head east. Elston Avenue is the first stoplight that you'll come to. Turn left on Elston and drive for just over a quarter mile. We'll be on the left side of the road just after the rail overpass. Parking is on-street, right in front of the store!
