Just have to pipe in here and give big ups to the people at Altos Las Hormigas. For the price you just can’t go wrong. I had the 2004 reserva and it was only twenty bucks but man it tasted like a forty or fifty dollar bottle. It took me on a journey of the senses constantly keep me in check every time I sniffed or sipped. When I see that label it brings me back.Good stuff. I am now on my way to grab a bottle just seeing this post. Cheers!

Thanks for checking out the back catalog. I think I might just see if the 2004 Altos is in the stores here…
